Willi Herren's gravestone has finally been unveiled.

Although many fans are touched, others find the tomb "too much".

Cologne - After there had always been Zoff about the grave of the entertainer and actor Willi Herren, one and a half years after his death the final resting place in Cologne is finally complete.

At the point where a wooden cross reminded him of him, there is now a magnificent black marble tombstone, as reported by 24RHEIN.

The reactions of fans are divided online.

The Cologne hit star was buried in the Melaten Cemetery (Cologne Lindenthal), which is still a popular place for fans to say goodbye.

Most recently, the auction of Willi Herren's entire estate caused a stir.

With this estate auction his creditors should be paid.

Pompous tombstone plays Willi Herren's "Kölle Hymne" 

The life of Willi Herren is now duly honored with the gravestone.

Drawn by black marble and framed by two Roman columns, a picture of the hit star's appearance at one of the legendary "Olé parties" can be seen.

You can see from behind how he spreads his arms in front of a huge audience.

The inscription on the tombstone is the farewell greeting to his viewers: "Bye, ciao and goodbye...".
