The rectangular Gothic hall church was built in its present form in the 15th century, incorporating some parts from the previous building.
The Church of the Holy Spirit was a so-called hospital church, here the sick and infirm were cared for and looked after. The interior is closed by a painted wooden ceiling. The baroque ceiling painting from 1687 shows Old Testament scenes. A particularly beautiful view of the church can be seen from the courtyard side. In the so-called "nave" adjoining the church, there used to be cells for the accommodation of the sick. For a long time it served as an old people's home.
Today, the entrance gate to the courtyard serves as a backdrop for the fictional police station of the crime series "SOKO Wismar".
