The Rabenlay, sometimes also Rabenley, is a mountain of the Ennert, which slopes down the Siebengebirge to the north. It is located to the east of the Bonn district of Oberkassel on the right bank of the Rhine. Its height is 180 m above sea level. NHN. It does not have a peak, but is an elevation above a striking rock face that was created as a quarry on the edge of the flat bank of the Rhine.
The Rabenlay is located in a nature reserve. The forest prevents water erosion, humus degradation and slows down landslides.
Adjacent to the south-east are the elevations of Kuckstein – which is often understood as part of the Rabenlay – and Paffelsberg, to the north are the lakes of Fairy Tale Lake, Blue Lake and Dornheckensee, as well as the Röckesberg. Until 1930, basalt was mined in the large basalt vein on the Rabenlay and on the Kuckstein. There are several viewpoints on today's steep edge. At the beginning of 2017, the "Skywalk Rabenlay" viewing platform was built above the former Stingenberg quarry on the neighboring Kuckstein.
