Preparing for your trip to Hauts de France

This region inspires painters and writers, and is home to a remarkable natural heritage and four regional parks with biotopes of bocage, marshes, forest, coast and other areas of great biodiversity. The region is also distinguished by its history - it keeps the traces of the two World Wars (see the Chemin des Dames) - and the richness of its heritage with many museums including those of Lille Metropole, the cathedrals of Beauvais and Amiens, the castle of Pierrefonds, the half-timbered houses of Compiègne or the belfry of the city hall of Douai. The region also keeps the memory of its textile industry and the mining era. The Hauts-de-France is also France s leading agricultural region, producing milk, potatoes, endives, beet sugar... In addition, there is the local gastronomy of a region that produces 10% of French champagne (around Château-Thierry) and is home to a large number of breweries offering high quality beers and producing excellent AOC wines, including Maroilles cheese. During your escapade, you won t be able to resist the local specialities, Picardy string, andouillette or Flemish carbonnade, not forgetting waffles (Belgium is adjoining!). Your Hauts-de-France tourist guide will help you enjoy them.
