Waldburg-Waldsee was a County ruled by the House of Waldburg, located in southeastern Baden-Württemberg, Germany, around Bad Waldsee.

Waldburg-Waldsee was a partition of Waldburg-Wolfegg. When the Wolfegg branch extinguished in 1798, the Waldsee branch inherited Wolfegg. Waldburg-Waldsee was a County prior to 1803, when it was raised to a Principality shortly before being mediatised to Württemberg in 1806.
