The Lattengebirge, also sometimes called the Latten Mountains, are a mountain range up to 1,738 m above sea level in the county of Berchtesgadener Land in the German state of Bavaria. They form a subgroup of the Berchtesgaden Alps and forms the northern end of its parent range.
The Lattengebirge lie northeast of the Reiteralm, from which they are separated by the mountain pass of Schwarzbachwacht, and west of the Untersberg, from which they are separated by the Hallthurm Pass. They are located within the municipalities of Ramsau, Bischofswiesen, Bayerisch Gmain, Bad Reichenhall and Schneizlreuth, as well as the former unparished areas Forst Taubensee , Forst St. Zeno and Bischofswiesener Forst , and they are also within the Berchtesgaden Biosphere Reserve. The Saalach, a southwestern tributary of the Salzach, flows past the Lattengebirge to the northwest running in a southwest to northeast direction.
