Silberschlag is a small, circular lunar crater in the central portion of the Moon. It lies between Agrippa crater to the southwest and Julius Caesar crater to the northeast. The Silberschlag crater is bowl-shaped and is joined at the northern rim by a small ridge.

Just to the north is the prominent "Rima Ariadaeus", a wide, linear rille that runs toward the east-southeast. This cleft is about 220 kilometers in length, and continues to the edge of Mare Tranquillitatis to the east.

By convention these features are identified on lunar maps by placing the letter on the side of the crater mid-point that is closest to Silberschlag crater.
