Wierzbno is a neighbourhood in Warsaw, a part of the Mokotów district.

It was named in the 1930s after a village of the same name that had existed there since the 17th century.

Until the 1960s Wierzbno was one of the southern suburbs of the city. After that it was urbanized with blocks of flats and a number of notable offices and facilities were located there, including the main offices of Polish Television and Polish Radio, as well as one of the tram yards.

There is a Warsaw Metro station of the same name located there (Wierzbno metro station).
