Vissing Priory (or possibly Abbey) (Danish: Vissing Kloster) was a Benedictine nunnery, situated near the monastery of Voer Abbey, but on the northern bank of the Gudenå, close to the present Klostermølle in Vorladegård parish near Silkeborg, Denmark.
Vissing Priory and Øm Abbey each owned half of the Vosgårde, which was a mill with appurtenances; the two religious houses were in dispute over it for the greater part of their existence.
Vissing Priory was burnt down by troops of Abel of Denmark during civil conflict in 1244. To what extent it was rebuilt, if at all, is unknown. The site has not been systematically investigated since, although there have been a number of casual finds, and therefore little is known about it.
The nunnery was formally wound up between 1424 and 1449 and its estates were transferred to Ulrik Stygge, Bishop of Aarhus. After years of contention some of them were eventually made over to Voer Abbey in 1488.
