Our city tour starts at the tourist office. But there are only two participants, namely Hans and me. So it is a private tour!
We visit the cathedral with Bonifacius crypt, the palace garden with the orangery and roam a little through the city with many interesting explanations about the street names and the houses. After the tour I visit the castle.
The slider shows pictures of the city and castle Fulda.
- Built from 1704 to 1712 according to the plans of the cathedral architect Johannes Dientzenhofer. Partially the towers of the Romanesque predecessor church were used.
- The crypt and capitals date from the foundation year 822, the building above from the 11th and 13th centuries.
- In the crypt is the tomb of St. Boniface. The altarpiece depicts his stabbing to death, and below it you can see his resurrection - with the help of angels he pushes up the coffin lid.
- Silver altar with the main relic of St. Boniface. The knife with which Boniface was allegedly stabbed is also solemnly displayed there.
- Rochus, pointing to his knee, and James with book and walking stick stand peacefully next to each other .
After the obligatory stage beer with Hans we drive over 'die Tränke' back to our quarters for dinner.
Through this old Fulda alley 'Die Tränke' the Way of St. James leads out of the city.
