 The Hare and the Hedgehog or The race between the Hare and the Hedgehog Low Saxon Dat Wettlopen twischen den Hasen un den Swinegel up de lütje Heide bi Buxtehude, German Der Hase und der Igel is a Low Saxon fable. It was published 1843 in the 5th edition of Grimms' Fairy Tales by the Brothers Grimm in Low Saxon and in 1840 in Wilhelm Schröder's Hannoversches Volksblatt under the full title Ein plattdeutsches Volksmärchen. Dat Wettlopen twischen den Hasen un den Swinegel up de lütje Heide bi Buxtehude. Ludwig Bechstein also published it in German in his Deutsches Märchenbuch (1853).

The hedgehog is the "common man" who used to eat the turnips near his house, therefore he considered them his own. The hare, on the other hand, is a distinguished gentleman and cruelly lofty to boot. The protagonists thus play the role of a farmer and a landowner. The two moral conclusions are also aimed at this social background; for the hare: One should not make fun of supposedly inferior people - and for the hedgehog: When you marry, you should choose a woman from your own class, preferably one with a similar mentality to yourself: "So if you are a Swinegel, you should be glad that your wife is also a Swinegel".
