Lingewaard (   ) is a municipality in the eastern Netherlands. It is located in the most eastern part of the Betuwe. It was formed in 2001 as a merger between Bemmel, Gendt and Huissen. The municipality was initially named Bemmel after the largest former municipality but later renamed in a referendum. "Lingewaard" itself is not a population centre, but an artificial name favoured by the majority of the voters. The municipality lies in between of the cities of Nijmegen and Arnhem, where most inhabitants work.
