Hooglanderveen (Dutch pronunciation: [ˌɦoːxlɑndərˈveːn]) (52°11′N 5°26′E / 52.183°N 5.433°E / 52.183; 5.433) is a village in the Dutch province of Utrecht. It is a part of the municipality of Amersfoort, and lies about 4 km northeast of Amersfoort. It is notable for the presence of a large catholic church.

Formerly, the village of Hooglanderveen was located outside of the city limits of Amersfoort, but the new residential areas of Nieuwland and Vathorst now mean that Hooglanderveen will be surrounded by the city.

In 2001, the town of Hooglanderveen had 1442 inhabitants. The built-up area of the town was 0.29 km², and contained 599 residences.[1]
