Kloster Veßra is a municipality in the district of Hildburghausen in Thuringia, Germany.

Vessra Abbey (now an open-air museum) was founded and supported by the Henneberg family and abandoned after the Reformation. The church was used as a parish church until 1939 when it burned. It also had a close association with the von Bibra family in the 15th century.
