The pyramid on the market place of Karlsruhe is the tomb of the city founder Karl Wilhelm of Baden-Durlach (1679-1738) and a landmark of the city. From 1722 to 1807 the Konkordienkirche stood at the present place of the pyramid, in whose crypt the bones of the city founder Margrave Karl Wilhelm found their last rest. After the demolition of the church, they first created a wooden pyramid above the crypt and collected for many years various designs on the further appearance of the tomb.
