Bernd Thijs (Dutch pronunciation: [ˈbɛrnt ˈtɛi̯s]) (born 28 June 1978 in Hasselt, Belgium) is a retired Belgian football midfielder who last played for Belgian club Gent. His former clubs include Borussia Mönchengladbach, Standard Liège, Racing Genk and Trabzonspor. Thijs played five times with Belgium and was in the team for the 2002 World Cup.
Thijs is well-known because of his sober style, his ballhandling with both feet and his targeted long shots. He usually played as a defensive midfielder, but was also capable of playing one row further up front. Sometimes he was also posted (as an emergency solution) in defense. At Gent, he was the captain of the team.
