Entry to Hospital Chapel by mirosu

Entry to small hospital chapel to the Holy Spirit in Waldshut, in southern Germany, belonged to the hospital next to it built during early 15th century.
It was in 1411 donated by the citizens of Waldshut and was to 1857 also used that way. The chapel has been opened to the public after restoration by the guild of the former bachelor shaft in 1468.
The hospital was primarily a sanctuary for poor and elderly people (Hospital entry gate at the right side).
Hospital Motto:
“The naked to clothe, the hungry to refresh, treat carefully sick people and pregnant women, provide lunch and dinner for the widows, orphans and strangers from wherever they may come.”
