Heiliggeistkirche in Munich is one of the oldest and beautiful rococo churches in Germany. It is located in central Munich, right at Marienplatz Station. Known as the Gothic hall-church or Church of the Holy Spirit, Heiliggeistkirch has a rich history dating back to the thirteenth century. Its predecessors, a hospice and a Romanesque chapel, were destroyed in 1327. The hospice was rebuilt and the chapel was replaced with a gothic church. Through the centuries, numerous remodelling projects have built it to its current masterful state, which attracts local patrons and tourists alike. The choir buttresses and the north wall of the nave are the only remainder of the original building.
- The spectacular ceiling frescoes of the Heiliggeistkirche in Munich are wonderful renderings of the baroque style which depicts spiritual gifts and the story of the founding of the hospice.
- The beautiful high altar and the Marien altar both display elegant architectural details and designs; the Marien altar models a wooden sculpture of the Madonna.
- Enjoy the picturesque view from the tower of the Heiliggeistkirche; the neighbouring Viktualienmarkt is the most popular market in Munich.
The Munich International Airport is located upriver to the northeast. The suburban train (S-Bahn) connects directly from the airport to the main station west of Marienplatz which is in extremely close proximity to Heiliggeistkirche. Travel time is approximately forty minutes. The MVV ticket system allows for use of the same ticket on all modes of public transportation including buses, S- & U-Bahn trains, and trams—tickets need to be validated before use. Use of public transportation is highly recommended due to expensive and limited parking as well as peak hour traffic congestion in this main area of the city.
