A royal house of worship with a family tomb
Construction on the palace chapel began as early as 1716. Its grandiose decor is an indication that the palace would soon be an official residential palace. No other such magnificent chapels exist in Protestant Württemberg. Beneath the chapel, the duke built a tomb for the royal family. The coffins of Duke Eberhard Ludwig, Duke Carl Eugen, King Friedrich I and many other members of the House of Württemberg now reside there.
