The Breitenberg near Sankt Martin in the Rhineland-Palatinate county of Südliche Weinstraße is a hill, 545.2 m above sea level , and subpeak of the Kalmit, the highest mountain in the Palatinate Forest. It is part of the Haardt mountains.
The Breitenberg lies within both the Palatinate Forest-North Vosges Biosphere Reserve and the Palatinate Forest Nature Park. Its summit rises 1.3 km northwest of Sankt Martin and 3 km west-northwest of Maikammer, whose joint territorial boundary runs over the completely wooded hill. Like the Stotz , with which it is linked to the northwest over a gentle saddle , the Wetterkreuzberg , the Taubenkopf , the Hüttenberg and the Kanzel the Breitenberg is one of the subpeaks of the Kalmit massif . It is located in an exposed location on the eastern edge of the Haardt, so that it appears as a prominent hill despite its relatively low height above places in the Upper Rhine Plain.
