Holy Spirit Market Church

Short facts

  • Clausthal-Zellerfeld

The Harzers are prepared for the next flood, should it come.

If you take the meaning of "Kirchenschiff" (church ship) literally, you can believe that the cosy wooden churches of the Upper Harz are able to float...
The miners, who raised some of the money for the construction of the Baroque Marktkirche zum Heiligen Geist in Clausthal-Zellerfeld in around 1637, built the largest wooden church in Germany with room for 2,200 people.
