Fulda Old Town

Fulda Old Town


Time travel into the Middle Ages

A guided tour of Fulda’s old town is like a journey back in time to the Middle Ages. The 14-metre-high Hexenturm (witches’ tower) is a striking part of the medieval city wall – the best-preserved defence tower of the former city fortifications. The impressive names of some of the buildings from the Middle Ages are particularly interesting: for example, the house “Zum Roten Löwen”, which served as the winter quarters of a Franconian knight’s dynasty, and the “Haus zum Totenbein”, which was used as an ossuary until the old cemetery was dissolved. The Severi Church, which was built in 1451 as a guild chapel for the wealthy wool weavers and gave the street its name Severiberg, was also characteristic of the city.
