An antenna device includes an antenna conductor on windshield glass, a feeding point having adjacent first and second feeding parts on the antenna conductor, and an auxiliary conductor including electrically connected horizontal and vertical conductors. The antenna conductor is adjacent to a connecting part between the horizontal and vertical conductors, and has a semi-loop shape with a cutout part in a loop-shape. The feeding point is located along the horizontal conductor, and the cutout part is located opposite from the horizontal conductor with respect to a horizontal line passing through a center point of a region surrounded by a semi-loop element, and opposite from the vertical conductor with respect to a vertical line passing through the center point. A length of a first element forming a part of the antenna conductor is 0.2
