The town in the Rhön region wants to inspire its guests with a whole series of events: For example, "Robin Hood" - a rousing stage story about freedom, love and justice, composed by Dennis Martin and Chris de Burgh - is again waiting for musical fans. During the musical summer from the end of June to the end of August, the play will be performed several times a week. The castle courtyard, on the other hand, is all about culinary delights: from the beginning of August, top chefs from the region will be spoiling their guests at the Pleasure Festival with their culinary art and excellent wines. The ambience is also outstanding: You dine with live music on the Pauluspromenade in the midst of a unique and historic ambience.

A little city adventure is the series of events "Pausen, Höfe und Genüsse". Always at lunchtime, you go on an enjoyable voyage of discovery: Hidden squares and courtyards in the old town await you - and art, culture and conviviality always accompany a good meal. At the end of July there is a real highlight: When the lights come on on the stage in front of St. Salvator Cathedral and thousands flock to Cathedral Square to listen to the top stars of the music world, it's Cathedral Square Concerts in Fulda again. Also this year, the star line-up can be seen: Within a few days, Eros Ramazotti, Michael Patrick Kelly, Johannes Oerding, Simply Red and Roland Kaiser will perform in the heart of the baroque quarter.
