Hiking: Timeless Villages of the Upper Fulda

The Fulda valley between Kassel and Fulda City is a remarkably beautiful landscape. However, much of it has been set aside for industrial or residential development. Between Bad Hersfeld and Fulda, though, the river valley is largely rural and forested in character with only small villages in between. This hike takes you through some of the timeless towns that once separated the Prince-Abbots of Fulda and the Prince-Abbots of Hersfeld.

Fuldaer Rabbit Stew (Dippehas)

Rabbit was once far more common than chicken in working and middle-class kitchens in the previous century. Its simple flavor and ease of cooking made it a staple. Today, chicken has largely supplanted rabbit in our diet, and recipes for it have disappeared from our cookbooks. This is a local variant of the classic German dish from the town of Fulda. As an ancient Catholic stronghold in a traditionally Protestant region, it had close ties to Franconia, which influenced the spices in this dish.

German Rabbit Stew (Dippehas)

Rabbit was once far more common than chicken in working and middle-class kitchens in the previous century. Its simple flavor and ease of cooking made it a staple. Today, chicken has largely supplanted rabbit in our diet, and recipes for it have disappeared from our cookbooks. This is a classic German dish from Hessen and Franconia. Its name translates to literally "rabbit in a pot" in the Hessen dialect.
