Burghaun is a municipality in the district of Fulda in the state of Hesse in Germany.

Burghaun itself is a small town with about 3,800 residents. Following the administrative reorganization of Germany in 1972 when smaller communities were grouped together, Burghaun took in the nearby villages of Großenmoor, Gruben, Hechelmannskirchen, Hünhan, Langenschwarz, Rothenkirchen, Schlotzau and Steinbach Burghaun (the town itself plus these nearby villages) currently has a total of about 7,000 inhabitants.

As the name "Burghaun" suggests, the town is in the valley of the Haune, a small river that flows into the Fulda River. Burghaun is situated about 5 km north of Hünfeld which, in turn, is about 18 km to the northeast of the city of Fulda.
