The Helpt Hills (German: Helpter Berge) are the highest natural elevation in the northeast German state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern reaching a maximum height of 179.2 metres (588 ft) above sea level (NHN). The hills are a terminal moraine formed during the Pomeranian stadium of the Weichselian glaciation and were named after the village of Helpt on their northern slopes.
The ridge, which is part of a relatively short hill chain running from southwest to northeast, is located in the east of the aforementioned German state in the district of Mecklenburgische Seenplatte about 24 kilometres (15 mi) (south)-east of Neubrandenburg, 3 kilometres (1.9 mi) north of Woldegk and 25 kilometres (16 mi) west of Strasburg.
About 580 metres (630 yd) southwest of the highest point of the Helpt Hills is the Helpterberg Television Tower which is about 155 metres (509 ft) high and not accessible to the public. Other transmission installations have been built not far to the north-northeast of the tower.
