 Fulda – A City for all

Whatever country you come from, you will feel at home in Fulda. There is a large number of café bars, pubs and restaurants catering for all preferences. Fulda is a small but charming, safe city. 

It is also worth getting out of the city to explore the nice surrounding area, the Rhön. Berlin, Hamburg and Munich are just three hours away by train.
