The chapel is closed on Mondays, so my husband and I were only able to enjoy the view, which is amazing. Even just the view is worth making the trip.

Expect good views from Stuttgart and a visit to a romantic spot but the interior has nothing interesting and the ticket is quite expensive. I would recommend to walk around the temple

We took a long walk from the train station (Unterturkheim) to the top of the hill to see Grabkapelle. Although the walk was a bit physically challenging, but we enjoyed it a lot as it runs through the fields and gardens.

It's actually the first orthodox church in Germany, and there are services here once a year. Built on the site of the original Castle Württemberg, it dominates the countryside. Its architecture was heavily influenced by the Pantheon in Rome, and the upper story is the church, while below, in the crypta, are the graves of Queen Catherine, for whom the... More

Not so easy to reach by public transport, so it is easier to go by car. But on top you have an exceptional view over the valley of the Neckar river. Good weather you see clearly steep hills of Schwäbische Alb, Stuttgart and the industries in this valley

Go for a hike to the Grabkapelle. It worth year around. You will have fantastic views over Stuttgart, the Neckar valley and the vineyards from up there. Park the car down in Untertuerckheim and hike up through the vineyards on well maintained little roads or stairs for little shortcuts.

This is one of the oldest churches in the area. It was badly damaged during World war II. They have done a great job restoring it, beautifully weaving together new architectural elements with the old ones.
