Heiliggeistkirche, Munich

Heiliggeistkirche is a Gothic hall church which originally belonged to the Hospice of the Holy Ghost in the 14th century but was remodelled in 1724-1730. After the hospice buildings were demolished in 1885, Franz Lšwel added three bays at the west end of the church and gave it a neo-Baroche facade.

The church, like many buildings in Munich, suffered severe damage during WWII and was restored afterwards.
