Long Description:
[DE] "Herzog Stefan von Bayern erteilte 1412 als Landesherr zugleich mit dem von ihm gestifteten Spital die Genehmigung zur Erbauung einer dem Heiligen Geist geweihten Kirche. Leider musste diese 1836 einer neuen Durchzugsstraße weichen und wurde durch einen spätklassizistischen Bau, den JOSEF SCHWEINESTER aus St. Johann im selben Jahr aufführte, ersetzt. Der sparsam mit Stuckleisten und Lisenen gegliederte einschiffige Raum birgt zwei Kostbarkeiten. Den schlichten Altar ziert seit 1961 „Die Heiligste Dreifaltigkeit“ von SIMON BENEDIKT FAISTENBERGER, wohl um 1740 entstanden. Im Kirchenschiff steht die fast lebensgroße Gruppe „Unser Herr auf der Stiege“, Jesus am Kreuzweg, gefolgt von Simon von Cyrene und einem Schergen, seltene Holzbildwerke aus der Mitte des 15. Jahrhunderts."

Aufgeführt ist die Kirche in der Liste der denkmalgeschützten Objekte von Kitzbühel: "Die Kirche wurde 1837 anstelle einer gotischen, 1412 geweihten und 1835 wegen des Straßenbaus abgetragenen Kirche errichtet und schließt nordöstlich an das ehemalige Bürgerspital an. Der schmale klassizistische Bau über rechteckigem Grundriss weist ein steiles Walmdach auf, das von einem Dachreiter bekrönt wird. Die Fassaden sind mit Pilastern und Profilgesimsen gegliedert."

[EN] "In 1412, Duke Stefan of Bavaria, in his capacity as sovereign of the state, and together with the hospital donated by him, granted permission for the construction of a church dedicated to the Holy Spirit. Unfortunately, in 1836 this had to give way to a new thoroughfare and was replaced by a late classicist building, which JOSEF SCHWEINESTER from St. Johann performed in the same year. The one-nave room, sparingly structured with stucco strips and pilaster strips, contains two treasures. The simple altar has been decorated since 1961 with "The Holy Trinity" by SIMON BENEDIKT FAISTENBERGER, probably built around 1740. In the nave stands the almost life-size group "Our Lord on the Staircase", Jesus at the Way of the Cross, followed by Simon of Cyrene and a henchman, rare wooden sculptures from the middle of the 15th century."

The church is listed in the list of listed buildings in Kitzbühel: "The church was built in 1837 instead of a Gothic church, consecrated in 1412 and demolished in 1835 for road construction, and adjoins the former citizens' hospital to the north-east. The narrow classicist building with a rectangular ground plan has a steep hipped roof crowned by a ridge turret. The facades are structured with pilasters and profiled cornices."
