2 reviews of Grabkapelle Württemberg in English
Grabkapelle Württemberg is one of my favorite places in Stuttgart, mostly because of the beautiful view from the top of Württemberg Hill and, in my opinion, definitely veeery romantic place in the city (also because it was selected by my boyfriend as a place for our first date…).
Grabkapelle Württemberg can be especially interesting for all russian tourists because it was built for Queen Catherine Pavlovna of Russia, the second wife of William I, King of Württemberg.

As eternal proof of love King Wilhelm I initiated to build the Sepulchral Chapel (Grabkapelle) for his young deceased wife Katharina from 1820 till 1821 on the idyllic site of the former ancestral Castle of the Württemberg. The rotunda composed of domestic sandstone, designed by the court architect Giovanni Salucci, turned out to be a monument for the popular Queen. Since the beginning of the 20th century the Sepulchral Chapel is publicly available. Russian Orthodox church services are still celebrate today.
