The Evangelical Church of Weilburg Castle is a Baroque-style sacred building in the small town of Weilburg in Hesse. It was the burial place of the House of Nassau.
Count Johann Ernst was the first ruler to be buried here. Princes buried in the former church were moved to the princely crypt in 1909. A total of over 30 rulers from Nassau and Luxembourg were buried in the princely crypt.

In the church of Schloss Weilburg, are buried:
Adolphe, Grand Duke of Luxembourg
​Princess Adelheid-Marie of Anhalt-Dessau ​(2 spouse of Adolphe)
Guillaume IV, Grand Duke of Luxembourg

Prince Friedrich Paul Wilhelm of Nassau (Biebrich, 23 September 1854 – Biebrich, 23 October 1855), Princess Marie Bathildis Wilhelmine Charlotte of Nassau (Biebrich, 14 November 1857 – Biebrich, 28 December 1857) and Prince Franz Joseph Wilhelm of Nassau (Biebrich, 30 January 1859 – Vienna, 2 April 1875)

Tomb of Grand Duchess Elizabeth Mikhailovna of Russia (1 spuse of Adolphe)
After only a year, Elizabeth died giving birth to a daughter, who also did not survive. The grief-stricken Adolf ordered the construction of a Russian Orthodox church - the St. Elizabeth's Church in Neroberg Park, Wiesbaden - to house her remains The location of the church on the hill was chosen by Adolf himself so that he could always have a view of the church from his residence. Elizabeth's sarcophagus can still be seen today inside the church.
