Heijenrath (in Limburg: Heieret) is a hamlet located in the southernmost part of the Dutch province of Limburg with about 125 inhabitants. The hamlet is located in the municipality of Gulpen-Wittem, on top of a hilly plateau, the Plateau of Crapoel, between Slenaken in the Gulp valley to the west and Epen in the Geul valley to the east. Heijenrath is still counted by some as one of the three hamlets that belong to Slenaken (together with Beutenaken and Schilberg). The distance to Slenaken is about one kilometre.

The hamlet is best known for being located at the top of the Loorberg, one of the toughest and longest climbs in the Amstel Gold Race cycling classic. This mountain will be climbed several times during the race.

In the hamlet, at a crossroads, stands the Maria Chapel Heijenrath. This chapel from 1875 is one of the two national monuments in Heijenrath, together with an elongated farmhouse with a perpendicular wing from the first half of the 19th century.

The hamlet of Heijenrath consists of a small core of habitation, surrounded by meadows. There are several hillside forests in the vicinity of Heijenrath. To the west is the Groote Bosch, to the south the Roebelsbos, to the southeast the Benedenbosch and to the east De Molt.
