Heurne is a hamlet in the municipality of Aalten, near Aalten (Achterhoek region) in the eastern Netherlands.

It was first mentioned in 1492 as Horne, and means "bent [of a hill]".[3] The postal authorities have placed it under Aalten.[4] In 1840, it was home to 274 people.[5]

Heurne has a village centre, "D'n Heurnsen Tref" and is known of the border crossing Heurne-Hemden [de; nl].[5] Across the Heurne lies the Hamelandroute.[5] Heurne does not have a centre, only a few stores at the border crossing. To avoid confusion with De Heurne (Dinxperlose Heurne"), Heurne is locally known as "Aaltense Heurne".[5]
