Heino is a village in the province of Overijssel in the Netherlands. It belongs to the municipality of Raalte and it has 6,459 inhabitants (February 2008). The village has a railway station along the railway Zwolle - Enschede and it can also be reached by the road N35.

Heino was a separate municipality until 2001, when it merged with Raalte to form a new municipality with the name Raalte.[1]

Heino is very touristic village with many estates and country houses. South-west of Heino, just across the railroad and the border to the municipality Olst-Wijhe, stands the castle Nijenhuis. It hosts an important art museum ( Constant Permeke, Van Gogh et al.). Around the castle is a beautiful sculpture garden (Ossip Zadkine et al.).

Every third week of August the village celebrates the 'Pompdagen' (Pumpdays), mentioned after the local Leugenpompe[2] village pump. The highlight of a series of joyful events is the so-called "Daggie Old Heino", including trades and handicraft from the past; markets and folk music. It draws thousands of visitors to Heino.
