Travel Tips for Fulda

Catholic City

by Weissdorn

For centuries, Fulda was a bastion of Catholic Religion. Fulda was a country of it's own within Germany, and under the authority of the Archbishop of Fulda, who answered to none other that the Pope, himself.
Fulda was an episcopate state, a church-state if you will. It was only loyal to Holy Roman Emperor, so long he was in good-standing (that is, not ex-communicated at the time). Fulda was organized like a beehive, with hundreds of small abbeys and monasteries littering the countryside, who worked their fingers to the bone, tirelessly increasing the blessings (wealth) of the Bishop, who more often than not used to occupy himself with worldly interests instead of godly interests.
This is why the Episcopate of Fulda was often feared in medieval times. Besides brandishing the fear of the threat of ex-communication, heresy, and witchcraft, they could and did impose a military threat to their neighbors by welding a sizeable army. Not that a Bishop could actually command an army, being a servant of Christ. He usually got around it, by employing a Vogt – a Bishop’s Captain of the Guard, or a Zentgraf – a church tax collector, or a Schultheiß – magistrate and judge for church subjects.
Even today, the Bishop of Fulda’s opinion is still highly respected today when it comes to modern-day religious and social issues. One thing that will become very apparent when you visit Fulda – it’s not unusual to see monks and nuns walking around in their traditional order dress.

Fürsteneck

by IceBear7

The category "off the beaten path" was invented for a place like Fürsteneck. Just a couple of houses, a pub and nothing else. Nowadays. Years and years ago there were some French guys passing by. Napolenon's soldiers on their way back from Leipzig after the battle of nations (see my Leipzig page for more info). Some of the soldiers froze to death here in Fürsteneck and people from the village erected a headstone on the site, known as the "Franzosengrab" (Frenchmen's grave) today.

Medieval Old Town

"A modern saint"

Right beside the Witches' Tower is the birthplaces of one of the most important inventors of the 19th century: Ferdinand Braun. His masterpiece, the Braunsche Röhre is part of every TV and radio in the world! He won a Nobel Prize, a big school in Fulda was named after him, but you can't visit his birth place. There is a bar in the basement where you can have a drink on him ;-)
