Măieruș (German: Nußbach; Hungarian: Szászmagyarós) is a commune in Brașov County, Romania, on the left of Olt river. It is located 30 km away from the county capital Brașov. It is composed of two villages, Arini (Lüget) and Măieruș. The settlement is mentioned for the first time in 1377 as "villa nucum".

It is considered to be the most northern commune in historical Burzenland, although Apața is nowadays the northern limit of it.
