(100+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site Historic Site
The medieval St. Anne's Church-- the earliest example of Renaissance architecture in German--was originally part of a monastery built in 1321. You not only can see the apartment where Martin Luther, the seminal figure of the Protestant Reformation, stayed during his visit to the monastery (now a small museum itself), but you also can visit the grand Fugger chapel, the burial place for the prominent family of that name. The structure's elaborate interior features a ceiling with colorful frescoes and intricate stuccowork.

  • Amazing building!
  • Decorated with white, well against the ceiling frescoes. Good use of cream and pink colors. There's also the contrast of Brown picture frame. There are many great cloister.

  • While the Church of Saint Anna's appearance is very simple, but it has played a significant role during the Reformation. Large collection of treasures in the Church, rich's Chapel (Fuggerkapelle), the Golden Chapel (Goldschmiedekapelle) and Lutheran Museum (Lutherstiege) are notable.

  • Here they celebrated the first Liturgy of Protestant doctrine. The old church of the 15th century, as the convent to which it belongs (very nice the cloister full of ancient burials), was embellished with Baroque decorative elements and features a double choir with the most interesting is the Western one, with Fuggerkapelle, born to the family of wealthy bankers, beautiful Renaissance work.
