Excellent road and rail connections and owing to its favorable closeness to Rhine-Main International Airport approaches to Fulda are short.
Fulda owes it origin to the Benedictine convent founded by Sturmius on March 12th, 744. Sturmius had acted on the instructions by Boniface, the missionary and organizer of the Frankian church. Excavations have proved the existence of an earlier settlement on the same site.
