The Danubian Lowland or Danube Lowland (Slovak: Podunajská nížina) is the name of the part of Little Alföld (Slovak: Malá dunajská kotlina) situated in Slovakia, located between the Danube, the Little Carpathians and all other parts of the Western Carpathians.

In terms of geomorphology, it forms one unit together with the Neusiedl Basin (Neusiedler Becken) in Austria and the Győr Basin (Győri-medence) in Hungary.

Many urban and other settlements can be found in this primarily agricultural area. The towns Topoľčany, Nové Zámky, Komárno, Levice, Dunajská Streda and Galanta are administrative centers.

Old wine growing towns (Svätý Jur, Pezinok, Modra) and health resorts (Piešťany, Dudince) can be also found in the lowland. See the articles of the two subdivisions for further information.
