Friedrich Th. Fischer: Hebelgrab,
Hildastraße , 68723Schwetzingen
Hebel’s tomb commemorates the sudden death of the Alemannic poet Johann Peter Hebel on 22 September 1826 in Schwetzingen during a visit to his friend Johann Michael Zeyer, the director of the grand ducal gardens. The solemn funeral already took place on the next day. Since 1854, a monument of yellow sandstone has marked Hebel’s final place of rest, made to the designs of chief building inspector Fischer from Karlsruhe. A medallion shows the departed poet in profile, crowned with laurels.
