Reußenköge (Danish: Reussenkog) is a municipality in the district of Nordfriesland, in Schleswig-Holstein, Germany. It is situated on the North Sea coast, approx. 17 km northwest of Husum.

The municipality includes a number of polders (German: Koog, plural: Köge), two of which were financed by Count Heinrich XLIII of Reuß-Schleiz-Köstritz and his wife Louise and thus bear the names Louisen-Reußen-Koog and Reußenkoog. Thus the name of the municipality was combined from both names, meaning literally in English: polders of the Reußes.
