Westmalle Abbey otherwise the Trappist Abbey of Westmalle is a monastery of the Cistercians of Strict Observance in Westmalle in the Belgian province of Antwerp.

The community was founded in 1794 and after some vicissitudes was elevated to an abbey on 22 April 1836. The abbey is famous for its spiritual life and for the Westmalle Brewery, a Trappist beer brewery. The three pillars of life for the Trappists are a life of prayer, life in a community and a life of work.
