Hospital of the Holy Spirit


Where to Find That Extra Special Holiday Gift

Get your loved ones something special with a unique story attached to it this holiday season. In Lubeck, standing in the centre of the Old Town, is the centuries-old Hospital of the Holy Spirit. Lubeck's wealthy merchants designed the building in 1280 to be a home for the elderly in order to be forgiven for their sins and gain a ticket to heaven. This is one of Europe's oldest social institutions that's used still today to host Lübeck's best-known arts and crafts fair for 10 days every December. You can get anything from unique items of clothing to wooden sculptures to one-of-a-kind jewellery.
