Hidden away from many, in the northeastern part of France, is a small town known as Munster. This little gem sits within a valley that’s flanked by the Vosges Mountains. The spectacular landscape that forms the backdrop for Munster is one that’s pristine, untouched by modernity.
Indeed, a walk through the streets feels like a step back in time. With ancient buildings still taking space in the town, Munster’s historic nature is its main allure. For instance, the Munster Town Hall, a building which dates back to the 16th century, is a major historical site. Also, the site of a 7th-century monastery, the Abbey of Saint Gregory, offers visitors an exciting place to visit.
However, Munster is neither known for its stunning scenery nor its ancient sites. Instead, this town takes pride in being a major cheese producing area and has the honor of producing its own signature style, known as Munster cheese. Planning a trip?
