Nuremberg - Heilig-Geist-Spital

Nuremberg - Heilig-Geist-Spital
The "Heilig-Geist-Spital" (spital = hospital), caring for the sick and elderly people, was erected 1332 - 1339. It was completely funded by Konrad Groß, the probably wealthiest of the local merchants and entrepreneurs.

The hospital was built partly above the bed of the river Pegnitz in the center of the town. When carpet bombings end of World War II put the old town of Nuremberg in ruins, the hospital got nearly completely destroyed. It got reconstructed in the 1950s, only the Heilig-Geist-Kirche (church), once part of the ensemble never got rebuilt.

To the very left the facade of the "Spital Apotheke zum heiligen Geist" is partly visible.
