Fulda

The Baroque town

The Baroque town of Fulda...

is what the signs on the motorway say, and the Baroque quarter is indeed a remarkable urban planning ensemble that really shapes the town. The unique cathedral is the only one of its kind in Germany. The light, airy place of worship was created in the 18th Century by master builders and designers. Opposite the cathedral, a magnificent Baroque palace was also built, and is today home to a well-visited museum.

 

 

Stretching out from right in front of the Baroque palace is a small yet perfectly formed palace garden decorated by another Baroque treasure: the Orangerie. Every year, this incredible scenery forms the backdrop to large open air concerts on the Domplatz and Schlosshof squares. But Fulda has more to offer than just Baroque masterpieces. Opposite the cathedral you will find St Michael's Church, one of the oldest Romanesque churches on German soil. If you stroll further through Fulda's romantic lanes, you will discover the medieval old town with its Witches Tower. History can be found at every turn here - but the town certainly doesn't feel like a museum. The old buildings are home to shops, boutiques and plenty of restaurants, pubs and pavement cafés. It is no wonder that guests from all over the world consider Fulda a sparkling cocktail of colourful impressions; an attractive mix of traditional sights, cultural attractions and a wide range of modern leisure options. No wonder that the viewers of hr television voted Fulda as Hessen's most beautiful town in 2012.
