Limburgs Dagblad was a Dutch newspaper published in Sittard, Limburg. Founded in 1918, in 2008 the newspaper had a circulation of 46,209.[1] Its last issue was on 29 December 2017, after which the merger with De Limburger was complete.

Even before the merger was finalized, both newspapers operated as the Media Groep Limburg, owned by Mecom Group.[2] The newspapers operated a common website. In 2000 both newspapers were acquired by De Telegraaf, however the Netherlands Competition Authority would only agree to this if both newspapers would stay separate. In 2005 this demand was dropped, and since then the newspapers have been working towards more cooperation. In 2006 the Media Group Limburg was sold to the British Mecom Group.
