Finne (hills)

This article is about the hills in Saxony-Anhalt and Thuringia. For the village in Saxony-Anhalt named after it, see Finne.

The Finne is a ridge of hills in the German states of Saxony-Anhalt and Thuringia.


Together with the Schmücke, the Hohe Schrecke and the Hainleite, the Finne borders the northeastern rim of the Thuringian Basin. It lies between Bad Sulza and Hauteroda.

The Finne Tunnel, which is part of the Erfurt–Leipzig/Halle high-speed railway and is currently (2007) under construction, is planned to pass through the Finne ridge with a total length of 6,885 m.
