The Trappist Abbey of Westmalle, or Abdij van Onze-Lieve-Vrouw van het Heilig Hart is a Cistercians of Strict Observance abbey in Westmalle in the Belgian province of Antwerp.

The abbey was founded in 1794, but the community was not elevated to the rank of Trappist abbey until 22 April 1836.

The three pillars of life in the Trappist monastery are a life of prayer, life in a community and a life of work.
