Septfontaines (Luxembourgish: Simmer, German: Simmern) is a small town in western Luxembourg. It is part of the commune of Habscht, in the canton of Capellen, which is part of the district of Luxembourg.
It was a commune until 2018, when Septfontaines and Hobscheid joined to form Habscht.
The name Septfontaines is a French neologism (the local population is almost entirely Luxembourgish-speaking), derived from the older name Siebenborn (literally, 'seven springs'), which appears as the name of the town in Latin and German documents from the nineteenth century and earlier. This name is also seen in Siewebueren, the name of the town's fountain. The name Siebenborn was often abbreviated 7born in vital records.
