Benniehausen is a village in the Gemeinde Gleichen in southern Lower Saxony.

The village of 371 residents (in 2005) is located in the Wiesental {valley} on the old trade route between Göttingen and Duderstadt, lying some eight kilometers south-west of the former city. Construction of the village's half-timbered church began in 1779. The community has a prize-winning [] volunteer fire department. Community organizations include a senior citizens club ("Altenclub Benniehausen").

Benniehausen and the surrounding area have been inhabited since the Paleolithic [Raddatz, Klaus, 1966, "Altsteinzeitliche Fundplätze im Gartetal bei Benniehausen, Kreis Göttingen", "Göttinger Jahrbuch" : 31ff.] . In nearby Niedeck, there is the ruin of an ancient fort, which was excavated in the 1990s [Grote, Klaus "Die Hünsche Burg im Gartetal bei Niedeck," "Göttinger Jahrbuch" 41:318-320.]

The mayor is Manfred Putz.
