An ancient religious center and Baroque marvel

Located in Hesse, Fulda once trained the missionaries who converted modern Germany to Christianity. Later on, in the 17th and 18th centuries, the city underwent a spectacular face-lift, acquiring some of the most beautiful Baroque architecture in Europe. And it's now a transport hub, largely thanks to its location at the heart of Germany.



More about Fulda



Founding Year



International Students




Situated almost in the middle of modern Germany in Hesse province, Fulda is home to 68,500 people, and 7,600 students at the city's University of Applied Sciences. Highlights include the elegant 18th century Stadtschloss and Fulda Cathedral, which crowns an attractive historic core.


Studying and Working in Fulda

Academically, life in Fulda revolves around the Fulda University of the Applied Sciences (HF). Created in 1974, the university awards Bachelor's and Master's degrees, along with Ph.D. qualifications, and specializes in computer science, business administration, food technology, nursing, and social work. It tends to cater to Fulda's service-based economy, training care and educational professionals, as well as business managers.

The city itself is lively and down to earth, with a vibrant live music scene, and it's not too far from prosperous Hessian cities like Frankfurt am Main, so prospects are good for those who want to enter the finance or information technology sectors. HF is also well suited to international students, with 1,250 students from abroad, English language degrees, and special careers services for international visitors.
