Favorite Village

Every year TV channel France 2 has a contest in France for the Village Préféré, or favorite village, in France. I hadn’t heard of most of those voted on except for Lourmarin, a beautiful place in Provence, and Kaysersberg which is the village that won this year. We were in Alsace last December and Kaysersberg was one of the places we visited and it was, as you might expect, very charming. It is also the birthplace of Dr. Albert Schweitzer, winner of the Nobel Peace Prize. Here are some photos I took while there.

As you can see, it was very colorful.

A pretty arch.

The stunning architecture, German in style. Alsace has been German in its past.

As you can see, we were there near Christmas. Decorations were everywhere.

Another beautiful building.
