Góra Świętej Anny [ˈɡura ˈɕfʲɛntɛj ˈannɨ] (German: Sankt Annaberg, Annaberg; Silesian: Anaberg, both names mean "Saint Anne's Mountain") is a village in the Opole Voivodeship, Strzelce County, and Gmina Leśnica of Poland.[1] The village is located on the hill from which its name derives, and a 15th-century church and monastery dedicated to Saint Anne are located in the village. The settlement lies within the protected area called Góra Świętej Anny Landscape Park.

In 1921, while still part of Germany, the hill was the site of the Battle of Annaberg during the Silesian Uprisings.
