Hohenbergia is a genus of plants in the family Bromeliaceae, subfamily Bromelioideae. It is native to the West Indies, the Yucatán Peninsula, and northern South America (Colombia, Venezuela, Brazil).[1]

The genus name is for the Prince of Württemberg, a German patron of botany known as Hohenberg.[2] This genus has two recognized subgenera: the type subgenus and Wittmackiopsis Mez. Recent DNA studies have shown the two subgenera are not monophyletic, and the species of subg. Wittmackiopsis have been transferred to the resurrected genus Wittmackia.
