I would say the Heilig Geist was an interesting place to go for a one time experience. I ended up there with a group of friends doing a birthday weekend. We didn't eat when we arrived and were more or less there for drinks. The ambiance is great and the service was excellent, But honestly to pay over 6 Euros... More

The main selling point is that it's a church turned into a restaurant. The atmosphere is great, service is mostly prompt and the food is well prepared. It's a good place to spend some quality time with friends. Even if there is outdoors seating, your best choice is to get a table inside.

I was recommended by a local to try this restaurant. The place is gorgeous and has a really nice atmosphere. The food was really good and the service was quite quick even though the place was packed.

As a french guy wanting to try some german food of quality, I was recommended to try this restaurant and it was really awesome. The dishes were nice looking and succulent. It was hard making a choice as the whole menu sounded nice. The place is himself very special, kind of big church but a bit loud though.

The most attractive feature about Heilig Geist is the ambiance. There are few places where you can eat at a mediaeval era church. The food here lives up to the reputation of the place. Though I have no idea what I did eat. A place as good for business meets as for hang out with friends. The music is good... More

This restaurant is in the remains of a medievil hospital. It is elegant, spacious and airy and quite popular with young people. Not too touristy. Service was polite and quick and the food was imaginative and nicely prepared.

This restaurant and bar are located in a beautiful old church. We found the food to be very good, excellent service and menus available in English. Good German wine list at reasonable prices. The Wiener Schnitzel dish was very good quality but far too large for me. They offered to put the left overs in a box to take home.... More

Be sure to check out the outside beer garden if the weather permits. We popped by to enjoy some drinks and listen to a musician play in the background. We opted to dine outside since the ambiance was so inviting. The service was exceptional and we were constantly checked on. The braised pork shank was fall-off-the bone goodness and the... More

The food and ambiance is very good but be warned you need CASH as no credit cards are accepted and even European euro debit cards do not work had to go to a cash machine to pay the bill what really spoiled the experience staff also is a bit distant a bit of a tourist trap
