is a municipality and a town in the Southern Netherlands, located in North Brabant province. The municipality has 6,876 inhabitants in1 August 2020, and covers an area of 76.36 km² of which 0.02 km² of water. In 2006, 174 inhabitants of Baarle-Nassau had Belgian nationality.
The town is best known for being a peculiar borderline between Belgium and Netherlands.
Together with the Belgian municipality of Baarle-Hertog, Baarle-Nassau forms the Kempen village of Baarle. The territory of both municipalities is particularly mixed up in the core of Baarle. There are 22 exclaves of Baarle-Hertog in Baarle-Nassau and eight exclaves of Baarle-Nassau in Baarle-Hertog. Some of these Dutch exclaves are again enclaves within the Belgian enclaves in the Netherlands.
Baarle-Nassau had two stations, which were part of the Bels line. One in the village itself and one near the Baarle-Nassau Border.

In 1403, the German count Engelbrecht I of Nassau-Siegen married Johanna van Polanen the daughter of the Lord of Breda Jan III of Polanen. According to then law, he became Lord of Breda. With him, the name of Nassau not only ends up in the Dutch Royal Family but also the name is given to the Dutch territories of Baarle. All the Baarle territory outside the Hertogse enclaves belong to Baarle-Nassau since that time.

The reclassification plans for Baarle-Nassau began in 1991. Due to the planned municipal redistricting in the province of North Brabant, the municipalities of Alphen and Riel, Baarle-Nassau, Chaam and Nieuw-Ginneken took the initiative in 1991 to investigate the possibilities of forming one large municipality together. After the reports were published, Baarle-Nassau dropped out and proposed an ABC variant consisting of Alphen and Riel, Baarle-Nassau and Chaam, thus without the municipality of Nieuw Ginneken.
When, in May 1992, the plans for the reclassification of Central Brabant become known, to everyone's surprise, the Baarle-Nassau area will also be involved in this, although it actually belongs to West Brabant. The Schampers Committee proposes to split the municipality of Alphen and Riel. Riel will go to Goirle and Alphen will form a new municipality together with Baarle-Nassau and Chaam.
On 15 February 1993, Jan Houben, chairman of the CDA-statengroep in North Brabant,during an information evening on the municipal redistricting in the Breda City Region, suggested that the enclave situation in Baarle could best be lifted so that one Baarle could join the Great Green Municipality.
On 8 July 1993, the Member States of North Brabant will announce their final proposal for the reclassification of the Breda City Region. To the surprise of many, a new municipality of Baarle-Nassau is proposed, consisting of the municipalities of Baarle-Nassau and Chaam and the cores Of Alphen, Galder and Strijbeek. Ulvenhout and Bavel do not go to Baarle-Nassau, but are joined by the city of Breda. The new municipality of Baarle-Nassau will have 14,800 inhabitants in this form.
The Dutch Parliament decided in 1996 to leave Baarle-Nassau independent and thus to keep out of the redistricting process in North Brabant.
