The Hamont-Achel burial mounds are a group of eight burial mounds, located in the North Limburg municipality of Hamont-Achel in Belgium. They are located in the Haarterheide forest area between Achel and Hamont.

The burial mounds date from the Iron Age, around 700 BCE. They have been partially restored to their original state, one of which, the northeastern part of the set, has been given a crown again. A second and a third hill have also been given a crown of posts. In 1962-1963 urns and pots were found by the National Excavation Service. These are on loan to the Municipal Museum Grevenbroek. Some of the remains had been placed in a hole. Furthermore, a northeast-facing keyhole-shaped grave was found right next to the road.
