Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I want to map a forest in our town but it would be important to see the different heights in the map. Is it possible to make something like this: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/f/fa/Cntr-map-1.jpg Thank You!

Try to take a look through the OpenCycleMap layer?

None of them shows a height or a contour line.

Try zooming in. Height label increments are in 50-meter increment if I'm not mistaken.

Found them on the bicycle map. Thank you

You're welcome. My bad - it's clearly being labelled as the "Cycle map layer" on openstreetmap.org (it's the same thing actually)

The OSM database doesn't store contours (as they're called). However many people have made custom OSM maps which include contours. The Cycle Map on the main website, or RichardF's cycle.travel.

... also you can find some hints about that via http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Contours
