Fulda Cathedral, Fulda

4.7
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.

  • This is one of those places you have to see in person; the structure is truly stunning. I enjoyed the little museum attached to the Cathedral. Well worth the visit.  more »

  • Fulda Cathedral is the former abbey church of Fulda Abbey and the burial place of Saint Boniface. Since 1752 it has also been the cathedral of the Diocese of Fulda, of which the Prince-Abbots of Fulda were created bishops.
  • I first saw this stunning cathedral when I was with the 11th ACR and recently took my youngest daughter to see it since she wasn't born when we lived here. It was as awesome as I remembered it was.
  • My family and I heard a short organ concert in June of 2016. The organ is magnificent as is the rest of the Cathedral. It is a stunning example of Baroque architecture. If you visit Fulda, get to this place! It's amazing.
  • Nice to visiting Cathedral at any city.
  • The inside is mind blowing
