The Selbsanft is a mountain in the Glarus Alps, overlooking the village of Linthal in the canton of Glarus. The Selbsanft is a large mountain consisting of several summits of which the highest is named Hinter Selbsanft. The massif is a buttress of the Bifertenstock and forms, along with Schiben, the ridge that separates the valleys of the Sand (west) and Limmernsee (east). A small glacier lies east of the summit.[2]

The mountain lies within the municipality of Glarus Süd.[2]
