The Grutenhäuschen is a partially reconstructed Roman grave temple located in a vineyard slope near Igel on the Moselle in southwestern Germany. This funerary monument from the 3rd century CE was restored on the remains of the original burial chamber in 1962 by the Rheinisches Landesmuseum Trier and reconstructed in 2001. It consists of a two-story temple-like structure with an open, accessible vaulted burial chamber.
