Photographer's Note

''Kaysersberg is a commune in the Haut-Rhin department in Alsace in north-eastern France.

The inhabitants are called Kaysersbergeois. The name means Emperor's Mountain in German.

Kaysersberg is considered one of the most beautiful cities on the wine route. The high fortress that dominates the city serves as a reminder of both its strategic importance and its warlike past. Before World War One, Kaysersberg was part of Germany.

Today, Kaysersberg with its medieval atmosphere is more appropriate as the perfect setting for an Alsatian festival.

Kaysersberg is one of the finest wine growing areas in Alsace. The first vines were brought here in the 16th century from Hungary, and wine production is still an important aspect of the town’s economy today. Wine produced from the Tokay variety is a local specialty.'
