Munster is a small town on the Haut-Rhin in Alsace, less than 20km west of Colmar. The country is famous for its typical Munster cheese, a soft cheese made from cow’s milk. The country is very impressive despite the destruction suffered during the First World War. The Munster Christmas Market is the most important Advent event in this Alsace town. In the Middle Ages Munster was declared an imperial city by Charles IV. At the beginning of the 14th century, the town was surrounded by walls.
