Vače (pronounced [ˈvaːtʃɛ]; German: Waatsch) is a settlement in the Municipality of Litija in central Slovenia. Traditionally the area was part of Lower Styria and is now included with the rest of the municipality in the Central Slovenia Statistical Region.
The settlement is best known for the Hallstatt-period Vače situla (Slovene: situla z Vač, vaška situla), an archaeological treasure of Slovenia, which was discovered in neighboring Klenik in 1882. It is a bronze vessel with a triple figurative frieze. Another important find was the Vače belt-plate (pasna spona z Vač), also discovered in Klenik.
