Fulda Cathedral, Fulda

(280+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site
The former abbey church of Fulda Abbey, Fulda Cathedral has been both the cathedral and symbol of the town since 1752. Sitting on the burial site of Saint Boniface, the Baroque structure was completed between 1704 and 1712. The cathedral suffered damage during World War II air raids and was closed for restoration until 1954. From a large square outside the building, you can admire the details of the facade, the bell towers, the main portal, and the obelisks. Inside, the white decorations display a Roman Baroque style reminiscent of St. Peter's Basilica in Rome.

  • Incredible Cathedral. Great architecture and so many details to see and explore. The kids and I had a great time looking at all of the details in each of the chapels.
  • Nice architecture, can also be attraction for architecture photography fanatics.
  • Had my First Holy Communion here and got to see Pope John Paul II in 1980!
  • The Cathedral is compulsory in Fulda. He is very beautiful baroque and even the crypt is worth a visit. It is built on the foundations of the previous Basilica, which was at its time the largest building North of the Alps. Access to the Tower, one can see the old building substance. Worth seeing are the pilgrimage in the summer and the Christmas fair.

  • Wonderful Baroque building. The organ concerts are an experience. The St. Michael's Church in the immediate vicinity is absolutely worth a look.
