Elstertrebnitz lies to the south of Leipzig, in a low-lying basin approximately 15 km northeast of Zeitz.
The municipality is largely agricultural.
The Elstermühlgraben is the name of a flume diverted from the river Elster. The Elstermühlgraben operated the mills from the Elstertrebnitz to Kleindalzig until the 20th Century. Very few mills are in operation today. Above all, the flume served the villagers for bathing and as a water source for needed washing water. The Pegauer Baths, which lie directly beside the Elstermühlgraben, cleaned and used the water for their facility. But the flume was also used as a transport route for various uses.
