The Kutschenberg in the Kmehlener mountains is 201  m above sea level. NHN the highest mountain in Brandenburg .

Its summit is in Brandenburg a few meters north of the state border.



The Kutschenberg rises in the east of the Kmehlener Mountains. Its summit is located in Brandenburg in the municipality of Großkmehlen - 1.5 km south of the town of the same name and 2.5 km west-southwest of the town center of Ortrand .

Mountain height

Recent altitude measurements in 2000 revealed that the Kutschenberg, at 201  m, is the highest mountain in the state of Brandenburg. In this regard, a small granite stele was set up on its heavily forested summit in 2011, which was only gently elevated above the surrounding area , on which one can read: “KUTSCHENBERG 201 m above sea level. NHN " . There is a trigonometric point near the summit at a height of 199.7  m .

The Heidehöhe , about 11 km west of Val Gardena , is at 201.4  m a little higher than the Kutschenberg, but is not considered the highest mountain, but the highest elevation in Brandenburg, as its associated summit, called Heideberg , is in Saxony. Contrary to the widespread opinion that the Hagelberg ( 200.24  m ) in Fläming is the highest mountain in Brandenburg, it is just surpassed by the Kutschenberg.

Am Kutschenberg race track

On the northeast slope of the Kutschenberg, about 400 m from the summit, there is the well-known off-road race track Am Kutschenberg , where car and motorcycle races take place regularly.
