St. Michael's Church, Fulda
Categories: Sacred & Religious Sites, Tourist Spots
St. Michael's Church, in Fulda, Hesse, is considered to be the oldest Holy Sepulchre church in Germany, built in the Carolingian architectural style (Pre-Romanesque) on behalf of abbot Eigil in the years (820 - 822). It served as a burial chapel to Fulda monastery founded in 744, which was one of the prominent cultural centres of the early Middle Ages. St. Michael stands in the neighbourhood of Fulda cathedral, and the architect was probably the monk Racholf (d. 824). The rotunda and crypt remain preserved from this time. In the 10th and 11th century, the church was extended from the rotunda, and a west tower was built. In 1618 the roof over the rotunda was rebuilt with a conical roof, and in 1715 - 1716 a chapel was added to the north side. Wall paintings in the interior date from the 11th century.Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to St. Michael's Church by using our Fulda itinerary planner.

Sehr schöne und baulich schlicht gehaltene Kirche, älter als der Dom. Leider war zur Zeit meines Besuches gerade Gottesdienst und somit eine Besichtigung des Inneren nicht möglich.Very beautiful and structurally simple held church, older than the Cathedral. Unfortunately, just worship and thus an inspection of the Interior was not possible at the time of my visit.show original

Hans WeitkowitzThe second oldest church in Germany, very interesting, because it is built quite differently than more modern churches. Front of the information sat an elderly gentleman, who knew so much and also details has pointed out, that you would otherwise miss.show original
