Kaysersberg, in Alsace, Grand-Est was an important town in the Middle Ages. It has a large fortress, and the town's name means Emperor's mountain which comes from the fortress. It has wonderfully preserved half timbered houses and is a great setting for any Alsacian Festival due to its medieval atmosphere.
