The Kaitersberg is a low mountain crest up to 1,132 metres east of Bad Kötzting in the Bavarian Forest in southern Germany. Its long ridge runs eastwards towards the Großer Arber.
The highest peak on the ridge is the 1,132 metre high Großer Riedelstein with its Waldschmidt monument. On another peak, the Mittagstein, 1,034 m , is the Kötztinger Hütte, a restaurant and mountain hut. Other prominent peaks with odd rock formations made of gneiss are the Kreuzfelsen, 999 m , with its hilltop cross, and the Rauchröhren, . Below the Kreuzfelsen is "Highwayman Heigl's Cave" , the hideout of Michael Heigl from Beckendorf, who threatened the area here in the 19th century.
