Not much to say but it is an old building with great architecture that makes for a nice picture as you are crossing the bridge. Something you will see while on a walking tour of Nuremberg or just wandering over the bridge.

Built betwen 1332 and 1330. Building is over the river Pegnitz. It was one of the largest hospitals in the middle ages. The structure along teh souther arm of river and northern wall of the former Hospice church survive. Tody, the Hospital of the Holy Spirit is a municipal senior citizens' home and it housed an excellent restaurant in 1963.
