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 village is home to the international Albert Schweitzer association AISL (Association Internationale Schweitzer Lambaréné).
