The village of Kaysersberg
Close to our hotel in Saint-Hippolyte
Picked as France’s favourite village in 2017, Kayersberg can be visited at any and every time of the year. We recommend starting your walk along the Rue du Général de Gaulle, which acts as the central point and will offer you a great overview of the loveliest architectural wonders of this small town of 2800 inhabitants. As with Obernai, Kayersberg is renowned for its many timber-framed houses, which give the place its unique ambiance. Make sure to visit the Hôtel de Ville built in an enchanting Renaissance style. Then head towards the town’s famous fortified bridge, built at the start of the 16th century in handsome sandstone. You’ll feel like you’re in another world!
It’s impossible to pass through Kayersberg without noticing the different vineyards. An essential stop along the Alsace Wine Route, the village has some of the greatest wine cellars in the region, as well as some of the best vintages of the Ribeauvillé and Riquewihr area. Some cellars continue to respect the oldest ancestral traditions, while some look to the future with growing technologies like biodynamic methods.
