The forest area of Haguenau extends over 210 km², making it the 4th largest forest area in France. It covers an area 30 km long and 10 km wide, and is crossed by 5 watercourses. Its situation on the plains makes the undivided forest of Haguenau the only representative of the northern forests of France to be at the transition between temperate and boreal forests.

On foot or by bike, the Forest of Haguenau can be explored all year round, throughout the seasons. Many marked hiking trails invite walkers to discover its natural wealth.

The site of the Great Oak, the veritable heart of the Forest of Haguenau, is a meeting place loved by families: auberge, play area, discovery trail, sporting tracks, etc. Use them to discover the remains of the Great Oak, the monument to the oak by Gloria Friedmann, the Chapel of Saint-Arbogast, etc.

Access to the site of the Great Oak by car is along the Schwabwiller road, running from the community of Schwabwiller to the D1063 (between Haguenau and Soufflenheim).

New! A tourist map of the Forest of Haguenau will be available from the end of May at .​www.tourisme–
