“Beautiful view”
Reviewed July 12, 2014

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.

“Impressive views but don't pay to enter”
Reviewed July 6, 2014 via mobile

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

“What a View!”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

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.

“Located on the hills within vineyards with great view”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

Very beautiful chapel built by the former king for his wife. It is located on the hills within vineyards. 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 the chapel if you go by car)

“Love never dies”
Reviewed March 2, 2014

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 front entrance and the inscription "Love never dies....". The structure is symmetric with plenty of doric columns and all elements that invaded european architecture after the discovery of Pompei in the late 1760.

The interior are simple with four statues representing the four evangelist, from a little wood staircase at the right of the entrance is possible to go down into the crypt where the king, queen and princess are buried and rest for eternity.

Really nice place to visit just few kilometers outside Stuttgart.
