The Ettersberg is a shell limestone mountain range in the interior of the Thuringian Basin, which consists only of an independent Inselberg.
On it, at the Großer Ettersberg, with a height of 481.6 meters, is both the highest point in the city of Weimar in Thuringia and the Thuringian Basin in general.
The Ettersberg has the only forest in its area.
It is about 12 kilometers long in a west-east direction and a maximum of four kilometers wide.
It represents the natural areas of Thuringia of the Thuringian State Institute for Environment and Geology (TLUG), analogous to the approximately 25 kilometers to the west of Fahner Höhe, an independent, 40 km² natural area.
Further elevations are the Bernhardsberg east of the Großer Ettersberg (around 400 m) and the Kleine Ettersberg north of Schöndorf (343.9 m at the Schanze).(Source: Wikipedia)
