European Rail Guide to Fulda

Country Germany


Baroque architecture and churches make up the historical centre of Fulda. Lovers of the baroque era will find plenty to see in the Baroque district, home to the Cathedral of Fulda, the Stadtschloss (Castle Palace) and the old town houses lining Friedrichstrasse; all lovingly preserved.

The Cathedral Museum gives an insight into the history of Fulda’s monastery, founded in 744. In 1752 Fulda became a bishopric, and has its own bishop to this day. Among the most impressive churches are the baroque Parish Church with its red and white façade, and Provost St. Peter, a monastery originally built in 836. The well-maintained crypt is where Saint Leoba is buried.
