Through his long career as a gendarme, Albert Heinrich has served in a variety of places, from New Caledonia and French Polynesia to finishing up as the commander of the brigade at Munster. Now retired, he finally has time to get back to his roots.
In 2005, Albert became the president of the Valley of Munster section of the Club Vosgien, heading over 500 members and more than 365 kilometers of marked and regularly maintained trails.
This man likes to hike; in 2007 he completed a Munster-Compostelle hike of 2,300 kilometers and in 2011 he added a 1,500 kilometer Malaga-Hendaye hike to his list of experiences!
For just about one year now, he has been a guide at the Albert Schweitzer museum. Becoming a Greeter is second nature to him.
His long experience in public service instilled a need to provide for others; he explains simply that he, “just likes people.”
