In the following table the highest mountain or hill in each of the regions of Bavaria is shown. A ‘region’ is taken to be a major natural region unit

in the column Range/Region”, high or extensive mountain ranges are shown in bold, lower or smaller hills and regions, which do not have a local high point or basin, but whose (island-like) high points have prominence are shown in italics. By clicking the word “list” in the mountain lists column, you will be taken to a list of other mountains or hills in the respective region (some of which may included those outside of Bavaria).

Multiple listings of the same mountain are possible because, e.g. the Zugspitze is simultaneously the highest (Bavarian) mountain of the Alps, Bavarian Alps, Northern Limestone Alps and the Wetterstein Mountains.

The table, which is initially sorted by height,may be rearranged by clicking on the symbols at the head of each column.
