The church has 200 years of history, and lovely stained glass windows. The main area of worship was closed for renovation.

The Heiliggeistkirche or Church of the Holy Ghost was completed in 1729. It is easy to find next to Bern's main train station. I loved the baroque interior with sandstone columns, free-standing pulpit and beautiful pastel ceiling.
