Ida (Hidda) of Wettin (German: Ida von Wettin / Hidda von Eilenburg; died after 1061) was Duchess of Bohemia as the wife of Spytihněv II of Bohemia. She was born about the year 1031, 1035 at the latest.

Ida was the daughter of Dietrich II, Margrave of Lower Lusatia, from the House of Wettin, and Mathilde of Meissen. She gave birth to two surviving children and together with them she was exiled from Bohemia after death of her husband in 1061.

Her daughter, whose name is not recorded, married a nobleman named Wichmann of Celle, whereas her son Svatobor (Friedrich) became Patriarch of Aquileia in 1085, only to be murdered during a street disturbance in February 1086.

She probably had another daughter, who became the first wife of Grand Prince Sviatopolk II of Kiev.
