The Ancient Ruins of Rauh is one of the main regions in Elden Ring's Shadow of the Erdtree DLC, and is considered the third main area of the expansion if you're following the main storyline.

You'll likely reach it from the Shadow Keep in Scadu Altus, but you can also get to it from the central region of Scadu Altus, and via the Scadu Altus teleporter. Each entrance takes you to a different part of the Rauh region, however, so to make sure you don't miss anything in this maze-like area, we've listed everything you need to know about the Ancient Ruins of Rauh below, including where to find its map fragment, every dungeon, boss and Site of Grace.

How to get to Ancient Ruins of Rauh

Normal route: There are 3 different ways you can enter the Ancient Ruins of Rauh, but the most likely route you'll take is via the Shadow Keep, following its western rampart wall that can be accessed from the first floor of the Specimen Storehouse. This is where the story leads you after defeating Messmer, the Impaler, and you'll need to use this route to beat the boss of the Ancient Ruins of Rauh as well.

Secondary route: To get to Rauh Base and the Temple Town Ruins in the lower section of the region, you'll need to find a hidden cave north of Moorth Ruins by the lake. Follow the passage and the bend of the landscape that takes you beneath the Shadow Keep, and you'll enter Rauh Base, which lets you access the region's two main dungeons, as well as its Map Fragment.

Hidden route: Use the Teleporter to the west of the Site of Grace 'Highroad Cross' in Scadu Altus and you'll be taken to a small, isolated area in the Ancient Ruins of Rauh where you can fight a Divine Bird Warrior and pick up a new talisman.
