Spire of Herzogspitalkirche

It was a Baroque building commissioned by Duke Albert V of Bavaria, designed by Johann Gunetzrhainer and inaugurated in 1727.

Damaged during World War II, the Duke Hospital was demolished and replaced by a new building. The tower was restored, the nave replaced by a new building designed by Alexander Freiherr von Branca (1956–57), with a brickwork interior.
