Oud-Turnhout (Dutch pronunciation: [ˌʌut ˈtɵrnɦʌut]) is a municipality located in the Belgian province of Antwerp. The municipality only comprises the town of Oud-Turnhout proper.

There are 3 parishes: Zwaneven in the east, St. Bavo in the centre and Oosthoven in the North. Zwaneven is in the upmarket residential area referred to as "De Lint", where many Dutch people live.
