About Church Of The Holy Ghost, Heidelberg

The church is so named after the descent of the Holy Ghost and the twelve Apostles. One of the most famous churches in Heidelberg, the Church of the Holy Spirit/Holy Ghost is built on the site of an ancient Roman basilica, standing tall right in the middle of the market place. The sky-touching steeple dominates the entire city, rising above all other buildings. Even though the church foundation was laid in 1398, the tower was not completed until 1544.

Highlights at the church:

  • Beautiful stained glass windows adorn the insides of the church.
  • Exquisite Gothic architecture both in the church exterior as well as interiors. Some Baroque additions were made in the later years.
  • The panoramic view as seen from top of the church tower is exhilarating.
