The Grenzgipfel (4,618 m)[2] is a subpeak of Monte Rosa (Pennine Alps), located on the border between Italy and Switzerland. In the German language the peak's name means 'frontier summit'.

The Grenzgipfel is the highest summit on the Italian side of Monte Rosa and the highest point of the entire border between Italy and Switzerland; it is also the culminating point of the Italian region of Piedmont and of the Ticino drainage basin.

The closest locality is Macugnaga, which is located east of Monte Rosa.
