Anoixi (in Greek, Άνοιξη, meaning "spring") is a rather exclusive suburb in Attica, Greece -- just about 23 km north of Athens. Anoixi is almost purely residential, but there are a few shops.

Anoixi sits in the northern part of the Athenian plain and are between the Parnitha mountain and the mountain range to the east. Anoixi is accessed with an interchange with GR-1/E75 (Athens - Lamia - Thessaloniki) at the 21st km near Varympompi 2 km west and GR-83 in the eastern part as well as Theseos (Theseus) Avenue forming a curve near the communal boundary with Stamata. The Cephissus River lies to the west. The main street is Theseos (Theseus) Avenue which is also GR-83, Grigoris Lamprakis Street and the road to Dionysos and Rea. Anixi is located SE of Thiva, S of Euboea and Oropos, W of Marathon, NE of Kifissia and NE of the Attiki Odos (number 6).

Most of the population are urban while until the 1960s and the 1970s were rural. Luxury houses arrived in Drosia and into the forested parts.
