The Leitha Mountains are a range of low mountains in Austria lying on the boundary between Lower Austria and Burgenland.
The range is an offshoot of the Alps and forms a connection to the Carpathians to the north. It is a ridge about 35 km long and 5–7 km wide along the southeastern edge of the Vienna Basin from Brucker Pforte in the northeast to Wiener Neustädter Pforte in the southwest. The range lies to the southeast of the Leitha River and is considered part of the Randgebirge östlich der Mur division of the Eastern Alps. The highest peak, Sonnenberg , is 484 m above sea level.
