On the top

Kaysersberg in Alsace, a walk uphill.
The inhabitants are called “kaysersbergeois” in french.
The town name is the german word for the Emperor’s Mountain.
The high fortress that dominates the city serves as a reminder
of both its strategic importance and its warlike past.
The view from the fortress is amazing and the stone steps are well used.
Kaysersberg is one of the finest wine-growing areas in Alsace.
The first vines were brought there in the 16th century from Hungary.

As usual inspired by “Restlessjo” and her “Monday walk” themes.
