Hill 400 is the name given by Allied forces during World War II to a 400 metres (1,300 ft) high hill located 1 kilometre (0.62 mi) east of the village center of Bergstein, Germany (near Brandenberg). Today this hill is predominantly called by its civil name Burgberg (English: castle mountain or castle hill). This small mountain provides a view over the entire Hürtgen Forest (German: Hürtgenwald) area and was strategically important as a vantage point and German artillery station during the Battle of Hürtgen Forest in 1944.
