In the north, Buehlau matches up to the edge of the Dresden Heath, where the Buehlau wood gardens (Bühlauer Waldgärten) are. In the west it is bordered along the Nachtfluegelweg (lit. Night Wings Way) to the Weisser Hirsch (lit. White Deer) and amounting to Neugersdorfer Strasse (lit. Neugersdorf Street) to Oberloschwitz. In the southwest it borders to Rochwitz.
