Coordinates: 51°29′N 3°58′E / 51.483°N 3.967°E / 51.483; 3.967 Biezelinge is a village in the Dutch municipality of Kapelle (province of Zeeland). On January 1, 2009, it had 1605 inhabitants.

The village is separated from Kapelle by a railroad. The two villages share a train station.

Previously the village had a port, which was connected with the Western Scheldt. In 1717, this silted up, and has since been transformed into a market.

A monastery named "Jerusalem" once stood on a rise east of Biezelinge. The foundations have been examined, but are no longer intact. The place has been used for agriculture for generations by the family De Roo.
