Zuilen is a former municipality in the Dutch province of Utrecht. It existed until 1954, when it split in two parts. The southern part merged with Utrecht and Oud-Zuilen merged with Maarssen. Nowadays, New-Zuilen is a neighbourhood of Utrecht. Maarssen merged with other municipalities to form Stichtse Vecht.

In Zuilen has been established since 1510 Zuylen Castle, where Isabelle de Charrière (1740–1805) was born and lived in summer and in winter in the city of Utrecht, till she married in 1771.

Zuylen castle is open to public since 1952.
