The Baroque city of Fulda - Barockstadt Fulda - is the name on the autobahn signs, and the Baroque district truly is a remarkable architectural ensemble that distinguishes the city. The unique cathedral is one of a kind in Germany. However, Fulda is home to more than just Baroque masterpieces. Opposite the cathedral is the Michaeliskirche, one of the oldest Romanesque churches on German soil.
Strolling further through the Romanesque lanes of Fulda, you reach the Medieval Old Town. The history here is in contemporary form, not that of a museum. The old buildings are home to shops, boutiques and numerous bars, restaurants and street cafés.
No wonder then that guests from around the world experience Fulda as a sparkling cocktail of colourful impressions. A charming blend of traditional sights, cultural offers and numerous modern leisure activities. No wonder that viewers of the broadcaster hr voted Fulda the most beautiful city in Hesse in 2012.
The unique cultural landscape, characterised by numerous wooded peaks, sweeping valleys, moors and unique flora and fauna holds a number of surprises in store. And there is more. Golf, cycle tours, climbing, horse riding, canoeing and paragliding are some of the many sporting activities of the Rhön region.
