Sanem (Luxembourgish: Suessem, French: Sanem or German: Sassenheim) is a commune and town in south-western Luxembourg. It is part of the canton of Esch-sur-Alzette, which is part of the district of Luxembourg. The administrative centre and largest town is Belvaux.
Sanem Castle has a history dating back to the 13th century. Today's building was completed in 1557 after the medieval castle had been partly destroyed. The castle still maintains much of its original character.
