The town with its ramparts, its castle ponds and its history (including the Revolutionary Armed bivouac and the New Zealanders Monument on the border of Valenciennes) are major attractions.

The Quesnoy is home to many small traders and a trading area of more than respectable size for a town of less than 5,000 people.

A glassmaking factory installed near the railway track to the site of the former Intermarché collapsed after World War I.

In the Bellevue district, the remains of a factory attest to the presence of a former pottery factory.

There is a craft, however, firmly maintained until 1945 when a hundred shoemakers were still identifiable.

The legendary story of the epic by Renaud of Montauban the horse Bayard and the four Aymond sons” is still known today from the Ardennes forest to the forest of Orleans).

The son of the Count (later Baldwin V, Count of Hainaut) married the said year 1169 in Le Quesnoy Margaret of Alsace, sister of Thierry of Alsace Count of Flanders: the wedding was gorgeous and the Holy Roman Emperor Frederick Barbarossa was present in person.

Baldwin V of Hainaut inherited in 1171 the title of Count of Hainaut in the death of his father, he was nicknamed The Brave (he was also later Baldwin VIII of Flanders).

The town of Le Quesnoy has somehow missed much of the Industrial Revolution.

Unlike the neighboring towns of Valenciennes or Maubeuge, iron/steel works did not take hold.
