Johann Dientzenhofer (1663-1726) came to Fulda in 1700 on the recommendation of the Bamberg prince-bishop and was appointed princely titular master builder by the Fulda prince-abbot Adalbert von Schleifras. He was commissioned to build a church for the Fulda high society, which he planned as a three-aisled basilica and which was consecrated in 1712 to the patron saint Christ Salvator. Since 1752, this church is the High Cathedral of Fulda, after the abbot had become bishop. At the same time, Dientzenhofer redesigned the town palace in baroque style - originally the castle was a Abtsburg, built at the beginning of the 14th century. Later, at the beginning of the 17th century, the castle was rebuilt into a palace complex and extended in the last quarter of the 17th century as a renaissance castle.
