Heesch (Dutch pronunciation: [ɦeːs]) is a village without city rights in the Dutch province of North Brabant. Heesch is next to the village Vinkel (nl). It is located in the municipality of Bernheze, about 3 km south of Oss. [1]

Heesch was a separate municipality until 1994, when it merged with Heeswijk-Dinther and Nistelrode. The new municipality was originally called "Heesch", but changed its name to "Bernheze" in 1995.[2]
