Kaysersberg, Alsace, France.

Kaysersberg es una pequeña ciudad entre Riquewihr y Colmar en el departamento de Haut-Rhin de la región de Alsacia. En general, se considera una de las ciudades más impresionantes de Alsacia, especialmente en el centro medieval de la ciudad.

La ciudad se encuentra en un entorno muy pintoresco, en un valle rodeado de viñedos y con colinas boscosas que se elevan por encima de la ciudad.
Tan pronto como entre en Kaysersberg, encontrará la agradable plaza principal, rodeada de muchos edificios pintados de madera y una calle principal muy agradable.

Al caminar por la calle principal y llegar al río, aquí es donde la ciudad se vuelve realmente encantadora. A lo largo de las orillas del río hay numerosas casas de madera medio pintadas de vivos colores, y el río Weiss está atravesado por un precioso puente de piedra fortificado del siglo XVI que añade aún más encanto a la encantadora imagen.

Otro punto de referencia notable dentro de la ciudad es la Iglesia Sainte-Croix de los siglos XIII-XV. La fachada frontal se encuentra entre las partes más antiguas de la iglesia, y en estilo romano: entre en la iglesia a través de la puerta tallada para ver el impresionante retablo del siglo XVI de Jean Bongart.

Kaysersberg is a small town between Riquewihr and Colmar in the Haut-Rhin department of the Alsace region. It is generally considered to be one of the most impressive of the Alsace towns, particularly in the town’s medieval centre.

The town is in a very picturesque setting, in a valley surrounded by vineyards and with forested hills rising above the town.
As soon as you enter Kaysersberg you fnd the nice main square which is surrounded by lots of painted half-timber buildings, and a very pleasant main street.

As you walk down the main street and reach the river this is where the town becomes really lovely. Along the edges of the river there are numerous brightly painted half-timber houses, and the Weiss river is crossed by a lovely 16th century fortified stone bridge further adding to the charming picture – delightful!

Another notable landmark within the town is the 13th-15th century Church Sainte-Croix. The front facade is among the oldest parts of the church, and in roman style – enter the church through the ornately carved doorway to see the impressive 16th century altarpiece by Jean Bongart.
