The Souffel (German: Suffel) is a river in Alsace, France. It rises near Kuttolsheim and joins the Ill river (a tributary of the Rhine), south of La Wantzenau after a course of 26 kilometres (16 mi). It has given its name to two villages on its banks: Souffelweyersheim and Griesheim-sur-Souffel. Tributaries of the Souffel are Haltbach, Plaetzerbach, Musaubach, Kolbsenbach and Leisbach. In 1815 the Battle of La Suffel was fought on its banks.
