Drégelypalánk is a village in Nógrád County, Hungary. It was first recorded in 1274 and was created as a merger of two settlements named Drégely and Palánk. The river Ipoly flows past the Börszöny hills here.
The village features a primary school, a cultural centre, a library, a sports ground and a gallery.
Drégelypalánk has a medieval fortress that was erected by the Hont-Pázmány dynasty in the 13th century. In 1552 the fortification were defended against the advancing Turkish Army.
The centuries-old economic relations to the neighbouring countries were lost after World War I.
Sights of Drégelypalánk include the late Baroque (1734) Roman Catholic church with relics of Saint Elizabeth (Hungarian: Árpádházi Szent Erzsébet), the Baroque chapel of St. Vendel (1857) and the ruins of Drégely Castle.
