Former city of empire, Kaysersberg has its imperial castle. Built around 1200 in order to block the roads coming from Lorraine, the village is an important strategic place in the war between the Empire and the Dukes of Lorraine. An enormous cylindrical keep, one of the oldest round keeps in Alsace, whose walls are more than 4 m thick, is a curiosity in itself.
Inside this wall and under the protection of the dungeon, you can also admire the lordly dwelling with its pointed arch windows! But above all, don't deprive yourself of a magnificent view: take the 100-step staircase that will lead you to the top of the keep to enjoy a splendid panorama of Kaysersberg and the vineyards.
