Glimmen is a village in the northeastern Netherlands. It is located in the municipality of Haren, Groningen, at about 10 kilometres from the city of Groningen. Glimmen has about 1700 inhabitants. The river Drentsche Aa flows past the village, nearby the Huis te Glimmen (House in Glimmen), a stately home on the site of a medieval castle.

The Appèlbergen is a wood to the east of the village. Through this wood leads an old Roman road, known as the Hereweg (from 'Heir-weg' or "army road").
