Are you coming to discover this fairytale village?
I was lucky enough to visit Alsace in December and fulfil one of my travelling dreams. If you are also travelling at this time of the year, don’t miss the Christmas market.
Even so, if you don’t have time to visit Kaysersberg and you don’t have time to see it, don’t worry. The streets are lined with Christmas trees, reindeer, Father Christmas and lights – you’ll feel like you’re in a Christmas fairytale!
There is no predefined route to visit Kaysersberg. The ideal way is to wander through the streets and find charming spots.
The main street is Rue du Général de Gaulle. In this street you will find the Ste Croix Church, located next to the town hall of Kaysersberg. And, in the same square, there is a fountain crowned by the statue of Emperor Constantine.
The main street of Kaysersberg is very long for what the town is. It starts before the Town Hall square and ends at the Albert Schweitzer Museum, dedicated to the Nobel Prize winner.
Albert Schweitzer was a doctor, philosopher, theologian and musician of Alsatian descent who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1952.
One of the symbols of Kaysersberg is its fortified bridge. It is located on Rue du Général de Gaulle. It dates from 1514 and has a beautiful view.
However, it is not the only one. Kaysersberg is crossed by the river Weiss.
Next to the fortified bridge, the one between Rue des Forgerons and the corner of Rue de Pairis and Grand-Rue des Prés is one of the most beautiful.
The last place not to be missed in Kaysersberg is its castle.
You can see it in the distance from one of the bridges in this French village or climb up to it. Admission is free. It is located on a hill, which you can climb up a flight of stairs.
