Just east of Marienplatz, and sitting on the northern edge of the Viktualienmarkt, is the Church of the Holy Spirit (Heiliggeistkirche). This whitewashed church with its slender steeple was originally designed as a hostel for pilgrims and the infirm, but grew into a grand church over many centuries. Its first incarnation came in 1392, but its current look was formed from rebuilding in 1725. Now it is a popular place for locals to take a break from the noise of the city.

Directions: Take the steps down from behind Alter Peter.
