In German, unten is often used to indicate the location of something in a vertical direction. For example, if you are standing on the top floor of a building and someone asks where the restroom is, you might say 'Es ist unten im Erdgeschoss' (It's downstairs on the ground floor).

Unten can also be used to describe the relative position of two objects. For instance, if you are holding a book and someone asks where the pen is, you might say 'Es liegt unten auf dem Tisch' (It's lying underneath the table).

Finally, it's worth noting that there are other German adverbs that can be used to describe similar positions, such as darunter (underneath) and unterhalb (below). However, each of these words has slightly different connotations and usage patterns, so it's important to choose the right one for the situation at hand.
