Description:
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.

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 'Heinose Pompdagen' (the Heino Pumping Days), mentioned after the local 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.
