(4.5/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
View some of the oldest tombs in Stuttgart, including the tomb of Johannes Brenz, the main Protestant Reformer of Württemberg, at Collegiate Church of the Holy Cross (Stiftskirche). Historical and modern elements are woven together in this church, which was built the 13th century and has undergone several additions, reconstructions, and reparations over the years. The most recent changes were due to the damage from 1944 bombing raids. Don't miss the huge organ; if you're lucky, you may get to hear it played. Be sure to pick up the information booklet at the small shop by the entrance.
