Kalbe is a town in the Altmarkkreis Salzwedel (district), in Saxony-Anhalt, Germany. It is situated approximately 15 km north of Gardelegen, on the river Milde. To avoid confusion with Calbe, it is also called Kalbe an der Milde.

Kalbe an der Milbe, was the location of the World War II German Naval VLF Goliath transmitter complex.

Kalbe is home to D. Dornblüth & Sohn, a small but highly-respected German watch company. Most of their watches are what are referred to as "deck watches" or marine watches. They are considered by most to be high quality with large amounts of hand-finishing. Dornblüth could be called a connoisseurs brand. Although small, they do not fall among the ranks of many other small micro-brand watch companies, which oftentimes house inexpensive utilitarian movements. [2]
