Hospital of the Holy Spirit


The Hospital of the Holy Spirit is one of Europe’s oldest hospitals.

It is a proud testament to civic pride and charitable giving and represents social progress during the Middle Ages: Even during this period, the sick and elderly were taken care of. A testimony to the proud Hanseatic town not to be missed. Standing in the centre of the Old Town, the centuries-old Hospital of the Holy Spirit has barely altered. It is one of Europe's oldest social institutions and was still in use during the 60s. Gothic frescoes deck the porch, the nave is divided into tiny chambers, so-called cubby-holes known as "Kabäuschen".
