Kongens Lyngby (Danish pronunciation: [ˈkʰʌŋəns ˈlyːŋby]; short forms Kgs. Lyngby or Lyngby) is the main city in the affluent Danish municipality of Lyngby-Taarbæk. Just north of Copenhagen, the city lies in the northern part of Denmark's largest island, Zealand (Danish, Sjælland). The city has two districts: Lyngby (east of Lyngby station) and Ulrikkenborg (west of the station).

Lyngby is home to the Lyngby Boldklub football team, several large IT companies, financial institutions, the major international engineering firm COWI A/S, Bang & Olufsen ICEpower a/s, and the Lyngby-Taarbæk Philharmonic Orchestra.

In the northern part of Kongens Lyngby is Lundtofte, site of the Technical University of Denmark.

Kongens Lyngby borders: Brede; the municipality of Gentofte (the most affluent in Denmark); Sorgenfri, where the Danish Prime Minister's official residence, Marienborg, lies; and the Gladsaxe municipality.
