"Marktplatz and Heiliggeistkirche" Heiliggeistkirche Tip by sabsi

Heiliggeistkirche, Heidelberg: 21 reviews and 35 photos

by sabsi

The church once was used by Protestants as well as Catholics. From 1706 to 1936 walls inside the church separated the two confessions. It is now a protestant church.

Being located on the beautiful and popular market square of Heidelberg Heiliggeistkirche is completely surrounded by tacky souvenir shops. I guess it's supposed to distract from the fact that the church is closed most of the time ;-)

I am always interested to see the things they sell as souvenirs from Germany. Argh, I was shocked. Find out more in my shopping tip!
