Sightseeing and surroundings

Visit us in one of the most beautiful landscapes in the heart of Germany.

The Baroque City Fulda, founded in 744 and its surroundings have much to offer to its citizens and all visitors.

Not only the cathedral of Fulda and the romantic Michael’s church are famous meeting points in this beautiful Baroque City but also the distinguished Residence Palace as well as Hessen’s most beautiful baroque castle Orangerie (‘Schloss Fasanerie’), its lovingly restored half-timbered houses, flowering parks and gardens and many interesting museums.


With 950 metres above sea level the Wasserkuppe ist the highest mountain in Hessen. Besides the Wasserkuppe has become well known as the birthplace of gliding flight.

The Rhoen Biosphere Reserve offers a lot of interesting information about sustainable development of landscape and culture. Sport and leisure possibilities around the peak make the Wasserkuppe one of the most popular destination for tourists in Hessen and Rhoen.


The mountain Kreuzberg is 928 metres high and opens a wide view into the Franconian landscape, the Thuringian Forest and the Frankonian Spessart. The Franciscan Monastery and the Baroque church were built in the 17th century. Since then the Kreuzberg is a popular place of pilgrimage.
