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. It had a population of around 1,065 in January 2017.[1] 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").
