The Heiligenberg is a wooded hill overlooking the town of Heidelberg in Baden-Württemberg, Germany. It rises to around 440 meters NHN and has been the site of several historical buildings: a Celtic hilltop fortification, a Roman sacred precinct, several medieval monasteries, modern lookout towers and a so-called Thingstätte, built by the Nazis in the 1930s.
The hill was called the Aberinsberg in the Carolingian period; in 1265 Premonstratensians from All Saints' Abbey in the Black Forest took over the two monasteries on the mountain, and its name became Allerheiligen-Berg , the ancestor of its present name.
