The province of Upper Hesse (German: Provinz Oberhessen) was one of three provinces in the Grand Duchy of Hesse and later the People's State of Hesse. Its territory covers the area of land north of the River Main in the historic region of Upper Hesse. The provincial capital and largest town of the rural provinces was the university town of Gießen.
The provinces of the Grand Duchy were wound up on 31 Juli 1848 and replaced by administrative regions (Regierungsbezirke); this was reversed again on 12 May 1852.
