Munster (French pronunciation: [mœ̃stɛʁ], German: Münster im Elsass) is a commune in the Haut-Rhin department in Alsace in north-eastern France. It is located in a valley of the Vosges mountains about 15 kilometres west of Colmar on the D417 road to the Col de la Schlucht and Épinal. The town's inhabitants are known in French as munstériens. The site of a 7th Century abbey or monastery, which gave the place its name, is famous for its cheese (the Munster cheese). In the nearby village of Gunsbach, Albert Schweitzer grew up in the late 19th Century, when the region was known as Elsaß-Lothringen (Alsace-Lorraine) and was part of the German Empire. The village was spelled "Günsbach". The town is home to the International Albert Schweitzer Association AISL.
