This place was build by King Wilhelm out of love for his wife Katharina. Beuatiful site to walk around and have a great view over the vineyards of Stuttgart. There is plenty of space to relax and take a rest. Some good restaurants and a hotel are nearby. In the chapel there is an underground wher you can visit the... More

1. It is best if you walk up the vineyards to get there instead of taking the car since the way there is in itself a nice experience, especially in good weather. 2. The place is lovely and you have a good view from the top. 3. The story behind it is impressive. I heard that the King had it... More

Although it was a sunny hot day, we decided to cycle up will the Chapel, although it was a crazy idea we had a lot of fun returning which took as 10 times less than cycling up. The view from above is worth the effort to walk, cycle or just drive up there. Up there there is only an ice-cream... More

I love this place! It is a small mausoleum that holds the king and queen of Württemberg and one of their daughters. It was built for the queen, who died young. The king truly loved her and was devastated by her death. He built the chapel on the location of a former fortress. It overlooks the Wasen (beer festival location),... More

A "must-see" for tourists and so easy to reach by S-Bahn and bus from downtown Stuttgart. Walk around the building and enjoy the fantastic view.

From bus stop , you can walk to this place and reach within 10 minutes. While you are on hill , you can enjoy Stuttgart... More

Sited beautifully on the summit of Wurttemburg Hill, about 15 mins drive from the centre of Stuttgart, we visited just before sunset. This would appear to be a popular time for people to gather to watch the sun go down. And its easy to see why! The views across the valley (and the vinyards) are quite breathtaking (particularly at dusk).... More

This site is located a little north of the city - not far, maybe a kilometer. It is a beautiful memorial chapel on the top of a hill surrounded by vineyards and has an amazing view. Also go inside the chapel for a reasonable price (3 Euros I think).

View outside the chapel is beautiful, on side you can city of Stuttgart and on the other vineyards. Inside I got recommended to go down and try clapping my hands when walking from the edge to the middle - quite interesting.
