Fulda Cathedral, Fulda

4.8
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.

  • Very beautiful and baroque art all around! You must have seen it! The pictures with holy people all around is the madness!! People who love Baroque must look at this! It's an altar even gentler dan's others! There is so much to see that you have to bring time! Also that museum right around the corner is commendable!

  • An impression of this church can only be obtained on site and not in pictures. On a visit to Fulda, this cathedral should be worth a detour, even for non-Christians.

  • The church is an iconic building in Fulda, although it is not as beautiful as the Baroque architecture of Nande. But buildings such as the altar, prayer room and so on can still make people feel the plump of baroque.
