Heilig-Geist-Kapelle

The "Heilig-Geist" chapel was built in 1757 and was usually part of the "Hospital zum Heiligen Geist". In 1935, foundations were found which implies that there used to be an own chapel for the hospital. After World War 2, the "Heilig-Geist" chapel used to be an emergency churge for the "St. Clemens" priest's office for a couple of years. After its renovation in the years of 1960/61, the chapel was opened as monument, dedicating to the casualties of the war and the gruesome dictatorship and since that a place for thinking and reflecting.
