Built in the style of renaissance revival architecture around 1890, the long-established hotel and restaurant “Zum Ritter” has been closely connected with the history, tradition and habits of Fulda ever since.
In 1926 the artist and church painter Hugo Pfister created the colorful frescos in the Rittersaal which had been newly built. The pictures “Ackerbau” (agriculture) and “Weinbau”(winegrowing) have been restored multiple times since. Thus, the merry protagonists of the pictures still bring joy to our guests.
Nowadays, it hosts parked cars, but approximately 100 years ago, the parking lot hosted a carriage pool for 40 horses. Landgravess Anna of the nearby Schloss Fasanerie was driven in a four-in-hand for her trips. She bought a piano from the aunt of the last German Kaiser which still stands inside the Rittersaal. That’s the way to experience history!
