Kaysersberg, this is the ultimate village on the « route du vin » THE postcard of Alsace !
Here, you will find a concentrated version of the Alsace region : a historical center city filled with charming old half timbered houses, magnificent bay windows, geraniums decorating the windows, cobbled stone streets, the river goes through the city and overlooking the village, a medieval castle.
In order to discover the charms of Kaysersberg with the help of our maps, we invite you to take a walk for an hour. The historical tour is well marked and you will see the remarkable historical jewels: Sainte Croix church, the fortified bridge dominated by a 18th century castle, the fortifications and its medieval towers as well as the birth house of the famous Dr. Albert Schweitzer, winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, which has become the museum of the same name (museum being renovated since September 2019).
A special tour comprising the doctor’s ideas has been created all around the old city.
A few important events are held each year:
The authentic Christmas Market: stands, lights, decorations, exhibitions, workshops… (the 4 weekends of the Advent ; Friday, Saturday, Sunday from 10am to 8pm).
Easter: Exhibition, Easter egg sales (scheduled the weekend, 15 days before Easter)
The Roleplay Festival, which plonges you into an imaginary universe for just a weekend (end of March or beginning April)
Festicave, the Art and All Natural Wine Festival (3rd weekend of August)
The Pottery Market : 40 potters and ceramicists coming from all parts of France, exhibiting for free (the first weekend of September).
Kaysersberg is equally an ideal place for numerous walks in the forest or for bike rides on the bike paths running along the vineyards. (documents available at the Tourism office)
