Hoogeloon is a Dutch village in the commune of Bladel, in North Brabant. Hoogeloon is situated 4 km north of Hapert and is around 40 km west of Eindhoven.

Former capital of the commune of Hoogeloon, Hapert en Casteren, Hoogeloon has been joined to Bladel since 1997.

Close to the town of Hoogeloon there are many tumulus dating from the Bronze Age, and among the largest in Benelux. To the east of the town are the remains of a Roman villa.

The spoken language is Kempenlands (an East Brabantian dialect, which is very similar to colloquial Dutch).
