Very small on the inside, at least what we were able to see. But historically very interesting because of the year that it was built.

If you are wandering through the baroque quarter, you cannot help but notice this smaller church with its witches hat towers. This church is different from the baroque structures, as the rotunda and the crypt go back to 900 AD.

This old church is situated on a hill near the cathedral, don't miss it! The central part used to be the chapel of the monastery and dates from around 700; it is beautifully built in the round. Later this chapel was enlarged to the church it is now.

Came out of the Cathedral and there up the hill at the side stood St Michael's, so while in the "churchy" mood, decided to look-see. What a quirky little church this is after the grandeur of the cathedral. The underground "chapel" down some steps to the side was a surprise, even if a bit chilly. The three of us enjoyed... More

the church was lit up with candles and had a wunderful atmosphere. Inside the rooms are shaped in an unusual way. No entrance fee.

This is one of the oldest church in Germany, built in 9th century. It is small, but it has an atmosphere where you really feel the history. There are catacombs as well like an old cemetery. Just some steps from the cathedral, on a little hill. Amazing!

Oldest Holy Sepulchre in Germany. Pre Romenesque Architecture. Founded 820-822 a must see if you are on a mission to study the evolution of the cathedral and follow the Christian movement into Germany. Excellent rotunda, conical roof or witch's hat towers. Easy walking distance from the great Baroque Dom Fulda. Take a step into the Middle Ages.

built in the VIII century, it has catacumbs. The altar is round because it dates from an early time in the history of the church when authority was not distant from the people. A jewel!
