Many of the hills are not higher than 400 m. There are several chains of higher peaks within the Hunsrück, all bearing names on their own: the (Schwarzwälder) Hochwald, the Idarwald, the Soonwald and the Binger Wald. The highest peak is the Erbeskopf (816 m). Notable towns located within the Hunsrück include Simmern, Kirchberg, and Ider-Oberstein . Frankfurt-Hahn Airport, a growing low-fare carrier and cargo airport is also located within the region.
The climate in the Hunsrück is characterised by rainy weather. Slate is mined in the mountains.
