Abstract: We study the supersingular locus of Hilbert-Blumenthal four-folds modulo $p$ when $p$ is inert in the totally real field. The dimension, local moduli spaces, number of the irreducible components, and a description of intersections of these components are given. We also show that each irreducible component is a smooth algebraic stack which is a quotient of a ruled surface over ${\mathbf P}^1$ by a finite group.
