Task #15 Heiliggeistkirche (Holy Ghost Church)

King Ruprecht III and his wife Elisabeth are buried in a 15th century tomb here. Write the name of the place on a paper and hold the paper in the picture of you outside this location. Ask if anyone knows how old each was when they died.

The ol' Holy Ghost Church on the Marktplatz. But that's Heiliggeistkirche to you Germans out there. If you think Heiliggeistkirche is a long word, try siebenhundertsiebenundsiebzigtausandsiebenhundertsiebenundsiebzig on for size.
Ruprecht III, whom I believe was responsible for starting up *the* university in Heidelberg, was a mere 58 years old when he kicked it while his wife, Elisabeth, followed him up a year later at 53.
