Stiepel Priory is a Cistercian monastery in Stiepel in Bochum, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany.

It was founded in 1988 at the instigation of Franz Hengsbach, first Bishop of the Diocese of the Ruhr. It is a dependent house of Heiligenkreuz Abbey in Austria.

The priory church is also a place of pilgrimage to the Blessed Virgin Mary, which is taken care of by the monks and the local parish.
