Inspirock Rating:
4.4/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web
One of the world's oldest social institutions and a precursor of modern hospitals, Heiligen-Geist-Hospital is one of the major landmarks in the old town center. The city's wealthy merchants designed this hospital to house the sick and poor in the 13th century, and the building still contains a home for the elderly within its walls. Built between 1276 and 1286, the brick building features five spires rising above a complex of structures that include a church and the so-called "long house," which used to be a dormitory. In winter you'll find a Christmas market renowned for selling handcrafted products. But you can visit the site at any time of the year to take pictures or join an informative guided tour.

  • This 13 century building is a fine example of the Gothic style. Previously, there was a hospital and home for the elderly. Cosy hospital komnatuški. They are very small and intimate. It was interesting to explore the building.

  • Guide's of beautiful church stained-glass Windows, until you hear the description.-what I thought, in the back there was shelter. Image side by side inside the Cathedral, old karaoke BOX, I installed was a grotesque sight.

  • ... you should go. A fascinating history, albeit with little understanding neighbors. Only the Vohalle and a short tour is to visit.
