Hagestein is a small city in the municipality of Vianen, Utrecht, Netherlands, on the Lek River, about 2 km east of Vianen. It received city rights in 1382.

Hagestein was a separate municipality between 1818 and 1986, when it merged with Vianen. Until then, it was a part of the province of South Holland.[1]
