Exploring Kaysersberg, Alsace

Kaysersberg is a picturesque village surrounded by forested hills and vineyards, between Riquewihr and Colmar in the Haut-Rhin department of the Alsace region, in France.

Kaysersberg seems always dressed up for celebrations, with its half-timbered buildings colored in brightly shades of yellow, green and pink, on the ground floor of which are enchanting boulangeries filled with all sorts of goodies. Hard to resist, especially if you are a gourmand, a true pastry lover, that smell of baked biscuits in the oven, fresh gingerbread (pain d'épices) and kougelhopf (yeasted marble cake, traditionally baked in a distinctive circular Bundt mold) - feels so intense on the cobbled streets of Kaysersberg.

The 13th-15th century Sainte-Croix Church is the landmark of the city, with its 6th century altarpiece by Jean Bongart.

Going further, the Weiss River is crossed by a beautiful 16th century fortified stone bridge, where, on both sides of the river there are tiny, colorful houses, creating an extremely charming landscape.

This small Alsatian village, Kaysersberg, is a delight for body and soul. You could walk for hours and still do not stop wondering how compact, picturesque and charming it is!

I think it's an excellent idea to visit Kaysersberg throughout the year. Yet we were in December and everything was decorated with Christmas ornaments, trees and many festive cakes in the patisseries. How gorgeous!
