A nice walk at the rim of the vineyards a bit uphill with a kind of surrounding view of the Neckar valley, the vineyards, the cradle of the automobile: the Mercedes factory in Untertuerkheim, the Daimler Arena and on top of course the Chapel which tells a bit of the Wurttemberg kingdom.

The chapel is on top of a hill, surrounded by vineyards. It is a great starting point for extensive walks through the vineyards and along the Neckar river. Too bad that the whole area closes before sunset and you can't even get close to it anymore. It would be a romantic spot to enjoy a warm indian summer night.

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.

You can have a very nice walk with views on the Neckar Valley with it's Mercedes plants and the museum. Do not miss to visit the cellar of the Collegium Wirttemberg producing excellent local wines (just on your way up to... More

This is an amazing example of Neoclassical Shrine, the place itself is a perfect spot for the surroundings of Stuttgart, all around you can give a look to the vineyards and you have a direct view over the Mercedes Benz factory and the Arena. From the outside the Chapel looks amazing with a great staircase that brings you to the... More

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
