The Brandberge is a protected natural area in Saxony-Anhalt, Germany, in the northwest of Halle. It is part of the Naturpark Unteres Saaletal, a protected landscape area which extends along the River Saale from Halle to Nienburg. In the past it has been used for military exercises and winter sports; during the Nazi era, the first official Thingplatz arena was built there.
The Brandberge covers an area of 90.54 hectares in the northwest of Halle, between Kröllwitz and Heide Nord, on the edge of the Hercynian strike; cold south-southwest winds channelled by the area have an important influence on local weather.
