The town of Kaysersberg is situated in the east of France, in Alsace, one of the current eighteen French regions. There used to be twenty-seven of them until the changes in the administrative division at the end of 2015 took place. The very name evokes its immediate proximity to neighboring Germany whose influence is also visible in the local traditional medieval architecture. Among the colorful timber framed houses you can find the green painted museum of the native Albert Schweitzer. Anyone who is interested can take a peek at the life of this renowned physician and theologian who received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1952.
