Want to know where to find all of the Elden Ring dungeon locations? This open-world game has many optional areas to explore in every region, more so than any other FromSoftware game. These dungeons house some vitally important gear, from healing items and weapons to key items required to unlock new areas.

You may find that finding the Elden Ring dungeon locations is the easy bit. Particularly tough as enemies await inside to pounce on any unsuspecting adventurers who dare to enter. Some dungeons even have deadly traps to avoid an untimely demise from a poison dart or a gargoyle tower burning you to a crisp.

We go over in far more detail elsewhere where all of the Elden Ring bosses are and how to find all of the well-hidden collectibles in every dungeon, such as the Elden Ring Ashes of War and the Elden Ring crystal talismans. For now, though, if you simply want to find all 53 optional Elden Ring dungeons, you can find a list of their locations below listed by region.
