Gadebusch is a town in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, in the district Nordwestmecklenburg, half-way between Lübeck, Schwerin and Wismar. It is part of the Hamburg Metropolitan Region.

The town is known for two notable monuments: the Stadtkirche (City Church), built in 1220, considered the oldest brick church in Mecklenburg, and the Schloss (Castle), built in 1580-1583 in Northern Renaissance style.

Near the town is the site of the Battle of Gadebusch, 1712.
