Interesting Reformist Church to visit.

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

We arrived to early, so we did some site seeing and then returned to find a service being held. That was even better. It was nice to just sit back and enjoy.

To me it is the most beautiful baroque building in Bern. It is really worth a visit! Especially the art exhibitions.

The church is quite normal if compared with the Münster for example. Another important detail is that the external part is covered due to reparations since months. Right now (Sep/2015) it is not really worthy the walk, unless you take the chance to visit it in one of your already planed city tours.

Berns most impressive Barock church, just being cleared of its scaffolding lovely, proud, clean, prominent. Worth a glimpse...

The pretty ceiling of this baroque church reminds me of a colorful wedding cake. Worth a quick look since it is steps from the main train station, and on the way to the Old City of Bern. Different from most churches here, the organ is in front of the congregation. At the moment, there are Friday afternoon organ concerts, though... More

I was surprised to see and hear Christians outside the church building preaching to and inviting tourists and locals a like. Great courage!

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.
