Haaren (   ) is a municipality and a town in the southern Netherlands, in the province of North Brabant.

Haaren is known as 'The Garden of Brabant' because of the many plantations of trees, plants etc. The municipality of Haaren contains three other villages: Helvoirt, Esch, and Biezenmortel. An unusual thing about Haaren is that it belongs to two regions, Tilburg and 's-Hertogenbosch.
