Since Elden Ring is an open-world game, having a map for navigation makes exploration in the game more comprehensible. There are map fragments you can pick up for each region in the game. Thankfully, they’re all relatively simple to find.

A Quick Note Before Collecting The Map Fragments
When you open the map menu without the Map Fragment for the region you’re in, you’ll only see a brown layout. However, nearby roads and the ones you’ve already crossed will still be highlighted.
You can spot pillars on your map when you get close enough to them. These pillars actually mark the location of that region’s map. Be sure to keep this in mind as you go along the game to search for Map Fragments.
The images below show the location of the Map Fragments on already marked maps — save for the regions in the underground. You can surmise the location of these fragments on your empty map by following the roads. A lot of these maps are found on the side of the road, which should make it easier for you to find them.
West Limgrave Map Fragment
You can find this map at the foot of a monolithic pillar west of the Gatefront Ruins Site of Grace.
East Limgrave Map Fragment
The map fragment for eastern Limgrave is in Mistwood. Follow the main path southwards from the Third Church of Marika. About west of the Minor Erdtree, you’ll find a monolith at the side of the road. The map is at the foot of this monolith.
Weeping Peninsula Map
From the Castle Morne Rampart Site of Grace, follow the main road as you make your way to Castle Morne. The map is also at the foot of a monolith you’ll find at the side of the road.
East Liurnia Map
You’ll find this on the lake north of the Liurnia Lake Shore Site of Grace. The area is littered with crawling enemies and broken structures.
West Liurnia Map
You can find this on the side of the road north of the Northern Liurnia Lake Shore Site of Grace. It can be easily found as long as remain on the main road and travel north.
North Liurnia Map
The monolith you’ll need to find for this map is right next to the Academy Gate Town Site of Grace in central Liurnia.
Upon entering Caelid from Limgrave, simply follow the main road until you’re at the southern section of the region. You’ll find the monolith that holds the map at the side of an intersection.
Start from the Dragonbarrow West Site of Grace and travel east while taking the main road. You’ll eventually spot the monolith that holds the map.
Altus Plateau Map
You can find this map at the side of the road north of the Altus Highway Junction Site of Grace.
Leyndell, Royal Capital Map
Upon entering the outer sections of Leyndell via the western gate, you’ll come across a Site of Grace and a monolith next to it. The map is at the foot of this monolith.
Mt. Gelmir Map
You’ll find the map for Mt. Gelmir at the foot of a monolith next to the Road of Inquity Site of Grace.
Siofra River Map
The map for Siofra River is at the base of the right pillar at bottom of the staircase of the Hallowhorn Grounds. This is the structure with the braziers that light up when you interact with the pillars all around the region.
Ainsel River Map
If you’re starting from the Ainsel River Main while doing Ranni’s questline, you’ll want to fast travel to the Eastern Tableland Site of Grace in eastern Liurnia and take the lift at the Ainsel River Well there. The lift here will take you to the southern part of Ainsel River, which is closer to the area where the map is.
From the bottom, just make your way to the south and keep moving forward until you arrive at an area with a Malformed Star enemy dangling in front of a structure. Head inside this structure and you’ll find a corpse before a Nomadic Merchant. Loot this corpse to obtain the map.
Lake of Rot Map
The map for the Lake of Rot can be found on a corpse lying close to the lake. It’s just south of the first Site of Grace you find when you first enter this area.
Deeproot Depths Map
From the Deeproot Depths Site of Grace, head north while traveling along the ledge and go through the ruins. You’ll eventually find a gazebo after a Broken Statue enemy. There’s a corpse in this gazebo that you can loot to obtain the map.
West Mountaintops of the Giants Map
The map for the western part of the Mountaintops of the Giants can be found at the side of the road as you go along the area from the Grand Lift of Rold.
East Mountaintops of the Giants Map
The map for the eastern part of the Mountaintops of the Giants is found right next to the Giants’ Gravepost Site of Grace. You can reach this area by passing through a giant chain.
Consecrated Snowfield Map
Keep heading north from the Hidden Path to the Haligtree, across the fog, and you’ll eventually find the Inner Consecrated Snowfield Site of Grace. Beyond this is a frozen lake. You can find the monolith that holds the map across this lake.
Mohgwyn Palace Map
To get the map for Mohgwyn Palace, just continue onwards from the Palace Approach Ledge-Road until you arrive at the Mohgwyn Dynasty Mausoleum. Ascend the flight of stairs and you’ll find a body laying on the ground. You can loot the map off of this body.
