The Lichte River is a right tributary of the Schwarza in Thuringia, Germany, and is 17 kilometres long.
The Lichte flows north through the Thuringian Forest Nature Park, first through the Finsterer Grund , where a now closed section of the Sonneberg – Probstzella single-track railway line passes over it on a viaduct. It then reaches the municipality of Lichte, which extends for approximately 5 kilometres along its banks. In the centre of Lichte the Piesau joins the Lichte. Below the municipality of Lichte, the river passes through a roughly 3-kilometre long and 200-metre deep gorge, which ends in the Deesbach Forebay ). This is followed by the Leibis-Lichte Dam, the second tallest valley dam in Germany, 102.5 metres high. The municipality of Unterweißbach borders the dam and extends for approximately 3 kilometres along the river, which then empties into the Schwarza to the west of the municipality at Mankenbachsmuehle.
