Dambel (German: Nombel; Nones: Dambel; Latin: Ambulum) is a comune (municipality) in Trentino in the northern Italian region Trentino-Alto Adige/Südtirol, located about 35 km north of the city of Trento.

Dambel is located in the middle of the Val di Non at an altitude of 750 meters. It is on the provincial highway between Sanzeno to the south and Sarnonico to the north. The town's name derives from the Latin word ambulum because it was at an historical crossroads on the commercial road between Lombardy and Germany, which crossed through Dambel and over the Novella River at the Pozzena bridge. Today the economy of Dambel is concentrated on the production of apples.
