Northern Jutland (Danish: Nørrejylland) is the name for the region north of the Kongeå in Jutland. The region south of the Kongeå is called Southern Jutland (Sønderjylland). Both territories have had own ting assemblies in the Middle Ages (in Viborg and Urnehoved).

Today Northern Jutland consists of the Region Nordjylland, the Region Midtjylland and the northern parts of the Region of Southern Denmark.
