Visiting Kaysersberg from Monday to Thursday ?
In Kaysersberg, you will find a year-round parking area designed specifically for campers, with services such as a drainage terminal and a water supply terminal. It is located at Erlenbad (Rocade Verte).
Visiting Kaysersberg and the Christmas market on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays
During the Christmas weekends (Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays), the Erlenbad parking area is reserved for bus / coaches, therefore campers cannot have access to it.
But don’t panic ! :) A campers-only park-and-ride facility will be set at the football stadium (rue du Geisbourg).

This campers-only parking area offers you draining services and water supply.
The parking fee is 10€ per vehicle for 24h : this sum will be fully redistributed to the Kaysersberg associations which will take care of the parking during these weekends.
It is also open from Thursday lunchtime for campervans. In this case, there will be no shuttle service on Thursday afternoon and Friday. In this case, there will be no shuttle buses on Thursday afternoon and Fridays, but you can take the pedestrian way along the Weiss river to walk to the city center (about 15 minutes).

New in 2023: the Kaysersberg campsite is open every day from 23 November to the morning of 19 December 2023. The services on offer are drainage, water and electricity. There is no access to sanitary facilities, and no reservations are possible.
