“Heiliggeistkirche (Church of the Holy Ghost)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

Located behind the Altes Rathaus (Old City Hall) and Alte Peter (Peterskirche...St. Peters) and near the Viktaulienmarkt is the small Church of the Holy Ghost (Heiliggeistkirche). While not as lavash as other Munich churches, this church sports a beautiful wrought iron interior gate, ceiling frescos, gold trimmed, white pillars and a beautiful high altar. Several paintings adorn the wall at the entrance. It is well worth a short visit on the way to the Viktualienmarkt.

“An Excellent Church”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2012

The Church of the Holy Spirit was finished in 1730 and given a Baroque facade. The main altar is beautiful and there are beautiful frescos on the ceiling of the church. One of the side altars is also beautiful, with sculptures and a large painting. One of the walls has a very good painting. The church is located beside the Victualienmarkt.

“A Beautiful Church”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2012

Persons interested in church architecture will find a visit to the Heiliggeistkirche (Holy Ghost Church) worthwhile. This Gothic church originally belonged to the 14th century Hospice of the Holy Ghost, a medieval order prominent in the 1300s. Most of the existing church is a reconstruction following the bombing of World War II. As the accompanying photographs reflect, this is a beautiful church.
