Koningshooikt is a village that since 1977 creates a municipality with Lier in the Belgian province of Antwerp. In the local dialect Koningshooikt is often called Jut or Koningsjut. Koningshooikt was founded on 1 January 1822, when the village Koningsbossen (also known as Koningsbos or 's-Herenbos) were united with quarters Hooikt and Hazendonk, the latter separated from the village Berlaar.

The village is known because of the bus manufacturer Van Hool, the sound recording studio Motormusic and the Motorhome constructor Konings.
