The High Fens ( ; ; ) are an upland area in the province of Liègemarker, in Belgiummarker and nearby parts of Germanymarker, between the Ardennesmarker and the Eifel highlands. Its highest point, at 694 m above sea level, is the Signal de Botrangemarker near Eupenmarker, which is also the highest point in Belgium. A large part of the High Fens lies within the German-Belgian natural park Hohes Venn-Eifel.

The High Fens consist mainly of moorland and forest, and stretch between Eupenmarker in the north, Monschaumarker in the east, Spamarker in the west and Malmedymarker in the south. It is a very rainy (1500-1700 mm per year) and swampy region. Several rivers have their source in the Hautes Fagnes: the Vesdremarker, Hoëgnemarker, Warchemarker, Gileppemarker, Eau Rougemarker, Amblèvemarker, Ourmarker, Kyllmarker and Rurmarker. There are several artificial lakes in the region.
