Brętowo (German: Brentau) is one of the quarters of the city of Gdańsk, Poland. It includes 2 housing estates, Niedźwiednik and Matemblewo, that are located inside Oliwa forests.

The old (now-closed) railway track from Wrzeszcz (Langfuhr) to Kartuzy (Karthaus) goes through the quarter, with Gdańsk Brętowo (PKP station) being the former station. As few railway bridges were destroyed, the remaining bridges are used by alpinists to train.
