I sit in one of little restaurants along a cobbled street in a place which was chosen the favorite village of French people in 2017. I drink wine produced just around the corner. It’s one of the perfect moments when I forget about everything and enjoy here and now. I often feel it in the mountains but this time, out of all cutest towns in France, Kaysersberg made me feel this way.
It’s one of the places I can’t write too much about. But I can’t skip it because I don’t want you to miss this adorable place during your trip to Alsace 🙂 So let me take you on a photo trip to Kaysersberg.
Kaysersberg, Alsace – photo trip
Kaysersberg is a little village in Alsace inhabited by less than 3000 people. It is famous for wine production mainly from pinot gris grapes. It’s located between picturesque hills covered by vineyards. It’s impossible to taste everything there, you might want to check some wine suitcases and wine carrier bags before, so you can take a lot of wine home! 🙂
It is full of traditional architecture. 13 June 2017 it won a TV contest for the favorite village of French people in 2017.
And I’m not surprised – for me it was also one of the most beautiful villages I’ve ever seen. I look at the pictures and I wonder if I shouldn’t change my life plan. Who said I can’t buy land with a vineyard, produce and drink wine till the end of my life? 🙂

What to see in Kaysersberg?
I don’t want to answer this question directly. It’s not a place where you should create a list of must sees. Walk the cobbled streets with no specific target and you will see beautiful houses and places everywhere 🙂
Go up towards the castle. You can climb its tower for free, look at the surrounding and see how picturesque it is.
Walk the paths between green lines of grapes, sit on grass, take a deep breath and relax 🙂
And then sit in one of little restaurants along a cobbled street, taste the local wine and food. Forget about everything and enjoy here and now. Just don’t be surprised if after this trip you will decide to drop everything, buy land with a vineyard, produce and drink wine till the end of your life 🙂
Next time I go there I will use the Wine Travel Guide to find more such places around the region and country. Also, there is more places in France where I’d love to go. I recently came across a post about stunning Jura region in France further south from Alsace – and it looks equally tempting. Now, how to decide?! 🙂
Also did you know there are other mountains than Alps in France? Check out this hike in the Vosges – a trail around picturesque three lakes. While in Alsace, don’t miss its biggest city – Strasbourg, which surprised me positively during my trip two years ago! 🙂
