You are standing near the site of a 13th century Heiliggeist hospital and pilgrim’s hospice (they were torn down in 1806). The original attached church was replaced in the 1392, then significantly refurbished in the 1720s and repaired after WWII. The Church of the Holy Spirit is still impressive 300 years later. If you like the Neo-Baroque façade of Heiliggeistkirche, you will be engrossed with the Gothic interior. Especially interesting is the early 18th century high altar and the Rococo frescos accenting the nave ceiling. They were painted in 1720 by the Asam brothers.
