Fulda Cathedral is the former abbey church of Fulda Abbey and the burial place of Saint Boniface. Since 1752 it has also been the cathedral of the Diocese of Fulda, of which the Prince-Abbots of Fulda were created bishops. The abbey was dissolved in 1802 but the diocese and its cathedral have continued. The dedication is to Christ the Saviour . The cathedral constitutes the high point of the Baroque district of Fulda, and is a symbol of the town.
The present cathedral stands on the site of the Ratgar Basilica , which was the burial site of Saint Boniface and the church of Fulda Abbey, functions which the new building was intended to continue.
