Isenburg-Limburg was the name of a state of the Holy Roman Empire, based around Limburg an der Lahn in modern Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany.

Isenburg-Limburg was created in a partition of Isenburg-Grenzau in 1220. The county controlled the then strategically important city of Limburg an der Lahn which was on the main trade route from Cologne to Frankfurt, and was often in conflict with neighbouring lordships and targeted by robber-barons. As a result the city was heavily fortified by the Counts. Towers were built around the city in 1315. In 1343 walls and a moat were added to surround the town. In 1365 after the counts died out, Limburg was annexed by the Archbishops of Trier and faded into obscurity.
