Horst is a village in the Dutch province of Limburg. It is located in the municipality of Horst aan de Maas. Although the municipality is named after the village, Horst itself is not called "aan de Maas", because it does not lie directly on the river Meuse (in Dutch called Maas).

Horst is known for its holiday parks. It is a popular destination for people looking for walks and cycling in nature. The village centre has plenty of cafes and restaurants and during summer season markets and other events are held regularly.
