Escorted Rail Tours to Fulda
The city of Fulda is located in the state of Hesse in central Germany. Fulda has a real small-town charm, with a laid-back atmosphere that is in sharp contrast to the nearby city of Frankfurt, Germany's bustling commercial and financial centre. The city is regarded as having been one of the strongholds of the Christian faith in Germany; the origins of Fulda date back to the founding of a monastery there in the 8th century by St Boniface, an Englishman whose relics are kept in Fulda Cathedral museum. The power and importance of Fulda was created by the prosperous 'prince-bishops' who, in the 18th century, built an impressive Baroque cathedral, a Baroque palace and magnificent summer palace - Schloss Fasanerie, located just outside Fulda.
