The village is positioned not far from the Reutenburgerkopf (586 m), some ten kilometres (six miles) to the east of the panoramic Rocher de Dabo, although the distance by road is much greater because the roads necessarily take a snaking route avoiding the steepest slopes. The nearest big city is Strasbourg, some 35 kilometres (22 miles) to the east. Communes surrounding Hengwiller are Dimbsthal and Salenthal to the north-east, Birkenwald to the south-east, Obersteigen to the south-west and Reinhardsmunster to the north-west.
The village has no real main street, being rather the crossroads of several minor roads.
