Google's machine translation is a useful starting point for translations, but translators must revise errors as necessary and confirm that the translation is accurate, rather than simply copy-pasting machine-translated text into the English Wikipedia.
Do not translate text that appears unreliable or low-quality. If possible, verify the text with references provided in the foreign-language article.
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.
