Hello friends and colleagues, today I offer you a view of the square with its charming buildings, the beautiful village of Kaysersberg, in the charming region of Alsace. I hope you like it, then some letters about the villa.

Kaysersberg, (in Alsatian Kaisersbari), was a French commune located in the department of Haut-Rhin, of the region of Great East, that the 1 of January of 2016 happened to be a delegated commune of the new commune of Kaysersberg-Vignoble merge with the communes of Kientzheim and Sigolsheim.

Kaysersberg is a small town between Riquewihr and Colmar in the Haut-Rhin department of the Alsace region. In general, it is considered one of the most impressive cities of Alsace, especially the medieval center of the city.

The city is located in a very picturesque environment, in a valley surrounded by vineyards and wooded hills that rise above the city.
As soon as you enter Kaysersberg, you will find the pleasant main square, surrounded by many painted wooden buildings and a very nice main street.
When walking down the main street and reaching the river, this is where the city becomes really charming. Along the banks of the river there are numerous half-painted wooden houses, and the Weiss River is crossed by a beautiful fortified stone bridge of the sixteenth century that adds even more charm to the charming image.

Another notable landmark within the city is the Sainte-Croix Church of the XIII-XV centuries. The front facade is located between the oldest parts of the church, and in Roman style: enter the church through the carved door to see the impressive 16th century altarpiece by Jean Bongart.
You will see several other historical monuments as you explore Kaysersberg, many dating back to the 15th century, such as the towers, the bridge and the ramparts, and the 16th century town hall, each of which adds to the charm of the city.

From many parts of the city you can see the ruins of the Chateau de Kaysersberg on the hill above the city. An important route passes through the valley here (the Col du Bonhomme) that has been defended since Roman times, with the castle that was built in the thirteenth century. In the following centuries, this was a prosperous city, apart from the years around the time of the Thirty Years' War.
Many of the most impressive houses date from this period of prosperity with the particularly productive sixteenth and seventeenth centuries: for example, the Maison Herzer, the Maison Faller Brief and the Maison Bohn were built during the 10 years from 1591 to 1601 and are three of the greatest houses in Kaysersburg.
