Béthune (Dutch: Betun) is a city in northern France, sub-prefecture of the Pas-de-Calais department.

Béthune is a town rich in architectural heritage and history. It has, among other features, a large paved square with shops, cafés, and a 47 meter (133 steps) tall belfry standing in the center from the top of which the Belgian border can be seen. The chime of the belfry is composed of thirty-six bells. A belfry (French:"beffroi") has stood on the site since 1346. The current belfry plays melodies every 15 minutes, including the ch'ti (regional patois) children's lullaby "min p'tit quinquin" (my little darling).
