Dec 16, 2018 - Kaysersberg

This morning when we woke up (3:30 a.m.) it was cold and drizzling. It took a while but eventually we had a cold but clear and nice day. We watched the ship go through a couple of locks this a.n. The captain said we will be going through 14 altogether. After a "light" breakfast and "light" lunch we were taken to a little town in France named Kaysersberg. It was a charming little town with a lot of original architecture and a lovely Xmas market. Each market is different and has food and drink and handicrafts local to that area. Always the...

Jun 2, 2016 - Arriving in Kaysersberg, our base to explore the Vosges Mountains

We travelled from Vittel to Kaysersberg via a roundabout route to avoid the twisty turning roads through the mountains. Our journey was mainly on dual carriageways or motorways except the final section where we travelled via a 7km tolled tunnel to just north of Colmar. We were then a short distance via ordinary roads to the small town of Kaysersberg. The last bit of the road to the campground was not helped by parked cars and builders trucks just opposite the campground entrance. The pitch they had reserved for us was not easy to manoeuvre...
