My stay in the Fulda area

by fairy_dust

During World Youth Day 2005 in Germany, my group stayed in villages close to Fulda for a few days before heading off to Cologne. We visited the city of Fulda twice and enjoyed it. Even before the main WYD celebrations, the city was full of people who were also staying in the Fulda area for the "Days in the Diocese". There were also events and celebrations in Fulda at the time.

The most prominent building in Fulda is the cathedral in the main square in the middle of town, which contains the grave of St. Boniface - the patron saint of Germany. There are also other beautiful churches in the city, as well as other old buildings that give the city an old-fashioned air.
