Frans Hogenberg (1535–1590) was a Flemish and German painter, engraver, and mapmaker.

Hogenberg was born in Mechelen in Flanders as the son of Nicolaas Hogenberg.[1] In 1568 he was banned from Antwerp by the Duke of Alva and travelled to London, where he stayed a few years before emigrating to Cologne.[1] He is known for portraits and topographical views as well as historical allegories. He also produced scenes of contemporary historical events.

Hogenberg died in Cologne.
