My hotel was on Market Square in Heidelberg's Old Town. The rear of this beautiful church could be seen from my window. I took many photos from all sides. At one time, a wall separated the church so that Protestants and Catholics could worship at the same church.

We just wandered around and took pictures of the structures, the patterns, and the windows. The organ is beautiful. Check the schedule to be there for a concert. They were practicing while we were there. great accoustics.

The church of the Holy Ghost in the middle of marktplatz is a huge imposing site upon entering the church it is so spartan without any images of saints, crucifix only to find out that throughout the centuries the church have transformed into many religion until it became a house of two religion they partitioned the inside into Protestant and Catholic but now no walls divide the whole church.
Upon entering the church from west entrance you will be treated to a spectacular sight of the choir area that is awash with sunlight very dramatic indeed.
Another thing to see is the tombstone of the King and his Queen and the stained glasses around the church it is hodgepodge of different style a must see.

Beautiful church located in the old part of the city. Gorgeous on the inside, surrounded by great shops, ice cream parlors, and restaurants.

We climbed the tower, passing through the upper level and up the tower stairs. We purchased a small booklet in English telling us about the history of the building. Many parts of the building are as old as the nearby Zum Ritter where we were staying.
