Velddriel is a village in the Dutch province of Gelderland. The village is a part of the municipality of Maasdriel, and lies about 8 km north of 's-Hertogenbosch.

It was first mentioned in 996 as Thrile. The veld (field) was later added to distinguish from Kerkdriel (church).[3] In 1840, it was home to 422 people. The St. Martinus Church was built in 1858 and destroyed in 1944. In 1953, a new church was completed.[4]
