Built partially on the river, this used to be the largest hospital in the imperial era of Nuremberg and is a great photo stop both during the day as well as at night.

This is a great spot for a photo. The old hospital has been here since medieval times and it's a very pretty location. If you have time revisit at night as it's lit up and again just a pretty spot to visit

Heilig-Geist-Spital (Holy Spirit Hospital) was built in the early 14th-century and was the largest hospital in the city of Nuremburg for centuries. It was built partly over the Pegnitz, giving this historic landmark building an attractive appearance, worth spending a few minutes to enjoy when sightseeing in the city centre of Nuremburg.

The hospital building now serves as a restaurant so you can visit the inside and have a meal here as well. Alternatively, you can simple enjoy seeing the architecture of this important heritage building as well as its beautiful setting amongst the banks of the Pegnitz.

Tip: Very good pictures can be taken from Museumsbrücke, the bridge just to the west of Heilig-Geist-Spital.

The old hospital is now not only a historical place but also a nice restaurant. The side from one of the city bridges to the building is a mus in your picture collection

The view of this restaurant building is very good, and that's what it is famous for. Not quite sure if the restaurant also is that good.

Pretty easy to reach as long you follow the stream side walk. Is a perfect place for selfie shot. You needed to explore behind those fruits vendor.

This is one of several great photo shots around Nurnberg. Its on most maps if you have done your homework. The translation is "Holy Ghost Hospital", which reaches out over the river.

The Heilig Geist Spital - or the Holy Spirit hospice if you like - is 1 of the landmarks of Nuremberg that has more than 500 years of history.
For those into history the best would be to have a guide explaining the history behind the place, nonetheless even is you are on your own you can/shall include this place into the must see landmarks of Nuremberg old town.
You can access the building and the inner courtyard through the restaurant's portal (you can also check-out the restaurant - very good place to grab some food).
Visiting is free of charge.
Overall I do recommend you spend some time and check out this place.

Most of travellers just make pictures of the building from the bridge, but you can also go to the inner yard, which is nice, peaceful and not crowded. To get there you can either go round the building and pass through the entrance in front of Schuldturm, or go to the Heilig-Geist-Spital restaurant, pass the arch and turn left just in front of the restaurant entrance. There will be a door, which is not locked, check out the picture I attached.

My husband and I were visiting Nuremberg during a river cruise, along with a group of other seniors. During a walking tour of central square, we visited many of the churches, the beautiful fountain, and museums. The most photographic view we found was the Heilig-Geist-Spital (Hospice of the Holy Spirit).

We were fortunate to have had a fluent English speaking local guide who provided us with an extensive history of these important attractions. To summarize, "Heilig-Geist-Spital was built in 1332 by Konrad Gross, city mayor, one of the richest men in town. It is the most beautiful view of the biggest institution for the poor in the imperial city. The inner courtyards are accessible from the Spitalgasse through the restaurant's portal. However, although this was a lesson in history and a photo op, we did not go to the restaurant. Maybe next time.
