The Essential
Hazebrouck means « marsh hare » in Flemish. Today, you would be surprised if you encountered an errant hare on the outskirts of this small industrial town - even if hare with prunes is a traditional dish here.
Although it is an industrial town and major railway junction, Hazebrouck is still attached to past history and tradition: it has a museum that traces back its history and a summer carnival where the three guardian Hazebrouck giants take every opportunity to participate in the fun.
