Wunderbar ruhig gelegen und doch ist das Stadtzentrum zu Fuss in knapp 15 Minuten erreichbar.

Schöne Kloster, mit fabelhaften Überblick über Fulda und bei schönem Wetter auch Umgebung.

Ein altes Kloster oben auf dem Hügel mit einen schönen Blick auf Fulda. Im Kloster kann viel besichtigt werden. Ein Lokal ist auch vorhanden. Warum im Ort so wenig auf dieses Kloster hingewiesen wird ist mir ein Rätsel. Der Besuch lohnt sich wirklich

Caerleon Roman Amphitheatre

Built around AD 90 to entertain the legionaries stationed at the fort of Caerleon (Isca), the impressive amphitheatre was the Roman equivalent of today’s multiplex cinema. Wooden benches provided seating for up to 6,000 spectators, who would gather to watch bloodthirsty displays featuring gladiatorial combat and exotic wild animals.

Long after the Romans left, the amphitheatre took on a new life in Arthurian legend. Geoffrey of Monmouth, the somewhat imaginative 12th-century scholar, wrote in his History of the Kings of Britain that Arthur was crowned in Caerleon and that the ruined amphitheatre was actually the remains of King Arthur’s Round Table.

Today it is the most complete Roman amphitheatre in Britain.
