Dyleň (German: Tillenberg) is a mountain in the Karlovy Vary Region of western Bohemia, located roughly 100 metres (330 ft) from the Czech Republic–Germany border. At 939 metres (3,081 ft) above sea level, its summit is the second highest peak in the Upper Palatinate Range (Bavarian–Bohemian Forest).
The German name lent itself to the title of the epic poem Der Tillenberg: Ein Sagenschatz aus dem Egerlande (A Treasure-tale from the Egerland) published in 1904 by Ernst Freimut (pseudonym of Johann (Hans) Sommert).
On its summit is a set of prominent buildings. These were used by the Soviet Union for electronic espionage into Germany during the Cold War. Now it's radio and television transmission tower.
