Class trip to Fulda

Fulda is located at the heart of Germany and is known for its university and trade fairs. In close proximity you find the low mountain range "Rhön", where you can hike, go skiing or just relax. The mountain range boasts pristine nature. It was named biosphere reserve by UNESCO. Fulda is very close to the former border with the GDR, that is why you can still learn about Cold War first hand.
