List of mountain and hill ranges in Germany

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This list of mountain and hill ranges in Germany contains a selection of the main mountain and hill regions in Germany.

In addition the list shows the highest (German) mountain in the range together with its height above sea level (taken as Normalnull (NN)) and the federal state in which its highest elevation is located. If the highest feature extends into neighbouring states, it is possible, that there are higher summits located there.

The same hill or mountain may be listed more than once; for example the Zugspitze, Germany’s highest mountain, belongs to the Alps, the Bavarian Alps, the Northern Limestone Alps and the Wetterstein Mountains.

The ranges are listed in alphabetical order.
