Travel Tips for Fulda

History Timeline Part II

by Weissdorn

822
The first golden age of Fulda dawned. Rabanus Maurus became the Abbot of Fulda. Under the direction of the "Teacher of Germany" the monastery library gained fame. During this period, it possessed 2000 scrolls, which were mostly produced in the scribe workshops in the monastery, and transcribed works from antique authors, including the one of oldest written work in the Germanic language, the Hildebrandslied.
The monastery school became one of the intellectual centers of Europe. Their most famous student was Einhard, the advisor and biographer of Charlemagne.

842
Rabanus Maurus renounced his office for political reasons. Five years later, he became Archbishop of Mainz. He died on February 4, 856 in Winkel in the Rheingau.

852
One a monastery document, the name "villa fuldensis" (Village of Fulda) appeared for the first time. Although this was probably a settlement of serfs, living northwest and southeast of the monastery, free craftsmen and merchants also settled in this area.

937
The basilica and the monastery were nearly completely destroyed by fire.

948
The rebuilt church was consecrated in the presence of King Otto I.

1019
Fulda was granted the privileges to mint coins, hold a market, and collect customs and duties by Emperor Henry II.

1020
Pope Benedict VIII and Emperor Henry II visited the Fulda Monastery, which the Emperor donated to the Pope.

1103
Portions of Fulda and the old city pastorial church were consumed by fire.

1114
For the first time, the expression "civitas fuldensis" (Town of Fulda) was seen appearing on coins.

1123
Bands of robbers attacked Fulda.

1134
Fulda was designated for the first time as "urbanus fuldensis” (City of Fulda). Officially Fulda was never granted the privilege to call itself a city.

1145
A fire raged through Fulda. It caused uncontrollable inflation and starvation. Robber raids were also the order of the day. The monastery started to decay morally and economically.

Baroque Noble Palace in Fulda

by Weissdorn

Looking out from the St. Boniface Plaza, directly over to the City Castle, you can get a great view of the Baroque Noble Palace, which the castle is grouped around. There is a whole group of little palaces, such as the Buttlar Palace, the Buseck Palace, the Altenstein Palace, the von der Tann Palace and the royal guard station. These royal buildings were housing for the royal administrators and were are designed by the same master builder, Andreas Gallasini. He designed this Baroque building group, which is very ornate.

The Rhön Mountains - on grey days

by IceBear7

The Rhön is a mountainous area, going up to 950 Meters. There are some great walks, great places you can reach by car, busy places like the "Wasserkuppe" and lonely forests.

It's wonderful in the sunshine and spooky on grey, foggy days. As you can see in this TL.

Spooky but in a nice way. Impressions. And during our little hiking trip in the grey, foggy weather we brought some fruit punch, yes with alcohol, which made it a great trip ;-)
