It is great pleasure to visit the Immanuel Kant's grave just right near Koenigsberg Cathedral. You couldn't step closer because of cage, but it is okay to feel some Kant's spirit... read more

While traveling across Russia, from Kaliningrad to Vladivostok, I did a local tour in Kaliningrad that included a stop at Immanuel Kant's grave marker. I took a photo for my personal use at this historic icon figure in Russian history.

Well a grave is a grave is a grave but if you honour Immanuel Kant the great philosopher you would not miss it and you can combine it perfectly with the visit to the Koenigsberg Cathedral which has been the main church of Koenigsberg and still is the main and most important sign of Kaliningrad.

More akin to younger generation German tourists, the Kant Museum tells volumes about the philosopher's life and times but whoever masterminds the collection does so with a twist. Some mundane and blatant maxims and quotes are taken from Kant's works to represent him, at the first look, an oddball if not a philistine. Impressive indeed is the exposition on German... More

If you are visiting Kaliningrad for it's past, this is one of those few glimpses of old Königsberg that survived soviet times only by miracle. Most of the graves of famous east Prussian figures were destroyed, but Kant's tomb was saved by an anonymous person who wrote a letter to one of soviet newspapers, fearing that the philosophers grave will...

To any philosophy buff this is a very important place to visit. Also, it's the grave that saved the whole cathedral which would have been otherwise destroyed. The grave is far back on the left side of the cathedral and from that side you would have actually missed it. Make sure to walk the full perimeter of the cathedral. The... More

I like history. Immanuel Kant was the great phylosofer. I read his papers and it was very interesting to be near his grave. Thanks for the renovation of his rest place. After the second world war (I was in Kaliningrad in the soviet times) this place was very poor(if to say delicate)

There doesn't seem to be anything immediately surrounding the grave to do, so we were only able to take a photo infront of it for memories and leave. I wouldn't go out of my way to find this place unless you have a real interest in Kant.
