Cologne Government Region (German: Regierungsbezirk Köln, Kölsch: Rejierungsbezirk Kölle) is one of the five governmental districts of the German Federal State of North Rhine-Westphalia. It is in the southwest of that state. It covers the hills of the Eifel as well as the Bergisches Land.

It was made in 1815, when Prussia reorganised its districts.
