    The Grand Ducal burial chapel is located in the pheasant garden on Klosterweg and the Lärchenallee. It is the last resting place for 17 Zähringer and was never a church.
    It was built on behalf of Grand Duke Friedrich I of Baden and his wife Luise after the early death of her son Ludwig Wilhelm (1865-1888). Construction was from 1889 to 1896, was built according to plans by Friedrich Hemberger. The opening took place on June 29, 1896.
    The equipment included Hermann Volz (funerary monuments), Wilhelm Sauer (busts of the Vierungspfeiler) and Hermann Binz (griffin heads in the crypt). At the side of the funerary chapel there are two wells.
    Since 1946, after the destruction of the Protestant town church, the family members originally buried there are also in the crypt of the funerary chapel. In total there are 18 coffins in the crypt, see also the tomb plan for details.

    The funerary chapel in the middle of the Hardtwald on Lärchenallee is the only grand-ducal building in Karlsruhe that survived the Second World War largely unscathed. SOURCE City Wiki
