Fulda Cathedral, Fulda

4.7
#1 of 15 in Things to do in Fulda
Religious Site Tourist Spot
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.

  • So much Catholicism at once in a relatively small town like Fulda slays one quite a bit. Well suited for Church and history lovers. Less for children

  • A beautiful Cathedral which is very brightly decorated inside in the unlikely, one finds little color. Magnificent organ, sat there during the summer half-hour organ concert at noon.

  • Ist is a very touristical place but inside you feel silence and peace. Therefore I enjoy every visit in Fulda to go inside and usually stay longer I planned to. It is a very historical religious place...  more »

  • 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.
  • Have not visited, but from the pictures I have seen, and the remarkable history. It has become a place I want to visit very soon. It will be included in a book I am writing.
  • 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!
