Grabkapelle auf dem Württemberg

Along with Rosenstein Palace, the sepulchral chapel in Rotenberg is one of the most impressive examples of neoclassical architecture in the Stuttgart region. Inspired by the Pantheon in Rome, Salucci created a circular structure made from local sandstone with three pillared porticos and steps leading up to it. The entirely white interior has a domed roof. The arrangement of pillars and the colossal statues of the four Evangelists reflect the neoclassical preference for severity and purity of style. To this day, the chapel serves as a Russian Orthodox place of worship and boasts a wall of icons and religious paintings. The graves are located underground – the double sarcophagus of the King and Queen lies next to the tomb of their daughter. Both are made from the finest Carrara marble.

In the vineyard

My new favorite place in Stuttgart, especially this time of year, is Grabkapelle auf dem Württemberg. The view of Stuttgart, walking between the vines and the silence of the place will draw me there always.
Evening time is best for a visit. Yes the mausoleum will be closet but there will be no people around. Perfect!
