Anne Enger, formerly Anne Enger Lahnstein (born 9 December 1949) is a Norwegian politician, but out of politics for the moment, as she is County Governor of Østfold. A former leader of the Centre Party, she is best known for her opposition to the European Union. She was the front person of the successful "No to EU"-campaign at the last membership election in 1994. She was also the leader in the campaign against abortion on demand in Norway in the late 1970s.

She served as Minister of Culture 1997–2000 and for 3 weeks in 1998 she was acting Prime Minister of Norway during Kjell Magne Bondevik's sick leave.
