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 or some other stuff like this.

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.

Usually when you see a grave of someone "big" they are easy to notice, worth seeing. Well that time it is worth to see just to say that you saw it and to have a photo. Nothing special.

Worth it only if you're Immanel's fan. Don't spend time on it. I think TA should delete this "tourist attraction" from the list. Because it's not an attraction. You'd better go to restaurant to have some tasty fish =)

The grave itself - not much to see. Try to come here with a tour guide or read a guidebook to learn more about Kant in the context of Kaliningrad
