Haguenau celebrates spring!

Spring and its first rays of sunshine make us want to go out...

To take advantage of these beautiful days, Haguenau invites you to celebrate spring for two days around "Sandhaas Spring"!

Sandhaas: this is the nickname given to the haguenoviens, which means "rabbit of the sands" in Alsatian, after the many rabbits present in the forest of Haguenau as well as the sandy nature of the soil. The Sandhaas has become the city's mascot!

Guided tour around Easter traditions (Sunday April 3 at 15 p.m.)

Don't miss the guided tour around Easter, one of the great Christian holidays in Alsace. As with Christmas, the habits and customs of this holiday often draw on pagan traditions with symbolic, funny, strange and sometimes difficult to explain rites.
