The Heilig-Geist-Kirche, the Church of the Holy Spirit, is almost as old as St. Mary’s, but primarily served as a place of worship for merchants and travellers rather than for the population of the town. Many of them will also have been pilgrims. The Reformation took place in Wittstock in this church. It was a former Franciscan monk who, for the first time, held the Last Supper in both forms here in September 1549. A devastating town fire in 1716 devastated this church as well. Its present appearance therefore dates back to the period after 1730.
