Åsebakken Priory, or the Priory of Our Lady, Åsebakken, is a Benedictine nunnery at Birkerød, about 20 km north of Copenhagen in Denmark. The nunnery is a member of the Beuronese Congregation within the Benedictine Confederation.

Founded in 1914 in Copenhagen, as a nunnery of the Perpetual Adoration, the community changed to a Benedictine house under the influence of the Beuronese mode of life in 1937.

The nunnery moved to the present premises, a former country house, in 1942. Although the Beuronese Constitution was adopted in 1936, formal incorporation was completed only in 1988.
