The Nonsberg Group (German: Nonsberggruppe, Italian: Alpi della Val di Non) is a mountain range in South Tyrol and Trentino in Italy and part of the Southern Limestone Alps. A large part of the Nonsberg Group is formed by the Mendelkamm. Their highest peak is the Laugenspitze (2,434 m s.l.m.). The Nonsberg Group is bounded in the east by the Etschtal, to the north by the Prissian High Forest (Ger: Prissianer Hochwald, It: Selva di Prissiano) on the Gampen Pass (It: Passo delle Palade) and in the west by the Non Valley (Ger: Nonstal, It: Val di Non).
