Oudelande is a village in the Dutch province of Zeeland. It is a part of the municipality of Borsele, and lies about 19 km southeast of Middelburg.

Oudelande was a separate municipality until 1970, when it was merged with Borsele.[1]

In 2001, the village of Oudelande had 255 inhabitants. The built-up area of the village was 0.085 km², and contained 123 residences.[2] The statistical area "Oudelande", which also can include the peripheral parts of the village, as well as the surrounding countryside, has a population of around 740.[3]

After running a test for one year, the city council decided to remove all traffic signs in the beginning of 2007 to improve the look of the historical village.[4]
