The 1952 Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to Doctor Albert Schweitzer, who now has a museum at the heart of his hometown of Kaysersberg. You can discover the cosy rooms telling the story of how the hospital in Lambarene, Gabon, was founded in 1913 and then developed. The hospital was founded by Albert Schweitzer, an Alsatian doctor, theologian and musicologist. Written documents, photographs and some of the doctor's personal memorabilia are on display. You can also admire various African artefacts stemming from this region of Gabon.
