In the Alsace Lorraine region of France, the small town of Kayserberg is found in the Haut Rhin department. Although just 3,000 people live there, the name is German for “Emperor’s Mountain,” evidence of the towns mixed heritage. Indeed, the town’s architecture will delight visitors with its typical German medieval village architecture, a nice contrast with more southern French villages of the same era. The town may also be visited by history buffs, as it is the birthplace of Albert Schweitzer.
In the center of town, the Kayserberg fortress still stands and seems to loom above the rest of the village. This reminds the visitor that the town was once a strategic stronghold in the area. However, today the village is known as being one of the most beautiful cities of the Alsatian wine country, and wine is an important part of the local economy. The grape vines that are grown in the area actually were brought here from Hungary in the 16th century. The Tokay grape is used to make the local vintages.
