Dominated by the Vosges mountains and the ruins of Schlossberg, Kaysersberg opens the way to the valleys of Lapoutroie and Orbey. The city, crossed by the Weiss, is one of the emblematic villages of Alsace: it is part of the 188 communes of the regional natural park of the Vosges balls, in the heart of the wine road whose reputation of the vineyard is not any more to make.
Kaysersberg became part of the powerful decapolis of Alsace in 1354, formed by the 10 other Empire cities of the region, Wissembourg, Haguenau, Rosheim, Sélestat, Obernai, Colmar, Turckheim, Munster and Mulhouse, and then began a period of decline after the Thirty Years War until the French Revolution.
Today, Kaysersberg enjoys an exceptional patrimonial wealth characterized by its picturesque streets with half-timbered houses that conceal several architectural monuments and its vineyard which abounds in pedestrian and cycling paths that will lead you to the road of the peaks where it is also possible to go with a dedicated shuttle.
Christmas is the occasion for the city to cover itself with the finery of one of the most beautiful Christmas markets in the world.
