Discover the Haguenau forest

True pride of our territory, the Haguenau forest is an integral part of the life of the inhabitants. This green more than 13 hectares, in the process of obtaining the Forest of Exception® label, offers many possibilities for solo or group walks during guided tours, including a path accessible to people with reduced mobility (and strollers!).

And for athletes, several fitness trails are also available free of charge to work out in the great outdoors!
