Here you are in Schiller's footsteps - one might think. However, the famous poet neither lived nor worked here.
Around 100 years after Schiller's death, the temple was moved from Stuttgart to its current location near Bad Überkingen, and it is honored in a very special way.

Over 200 years ago - on May 9th, 1805 - Friedrich Schiller, one of the greatest poets our country produced, died. Many cities and communities associated with Schiller and his work - Marbach and Mannheim are certainly the most important examples - commemorated this date with numerous events.
Friedrich Schiller neither lived nor worked in Bad Überkingen! Nevertheless, the community honors the poet with the small temple of Schiller on a hill northeast of Bad Überkingen. And 100 years after Schiller's death, the then owner of the Überking fountain and bathing company, the Secret Commerce Councilor Carl Haegele, dismantled the small building that was previously erected in Stuttgart in memory of Schiller's carpenters, moved it here and had it erected at the current location.
