St. Anne's Church, Augsburg

4.4
#3 of 13 in Historic Sites in Augsburg
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.

  • This Evangelical Church is impressive, because Luther was twice here. About the Luther enters a small museum staircase. The burial place of the Fugger family in the Renaissance has cost 10 times as much growing as the Fuggerei. Worth seeing also the chapel of Goldsmith.

Santa Ana was built in 1321 by Carmelite monks. In 1518, Martín Luther was there with the Carmelite friars when it was in Augsburg. The roof of the Church is decorated with Baroque and rococo, stucco with frescoes by Johann Georg Bergmüller

  • When it enters the St Anna Church, is Martin Luther, 2 real Cranach's first Protestant end up with a portrait. An old chapel with wonderful old frescoes rediscovered is located straight ahead. In the middle of the nave, the altar of a special dark red wax block is modern and harmonious, at the same time. On the Catholic left end behind the barrier is the burial place of Fugger with the emblem of the family. One goes up, the Luther staircase made of wood entering the small chambers of the faith-survey of Luther's.

  • nice
  • Amazing building!
  • The Church itself is very beautiful. She also has a small museum about the history of reform and about the time that Luther was in town. In one of the rooms there is a pretty good representation in Luther's dialogue audio with Cajetan. Well worth a visit!

  • Very interesting Church Catholic apse with a tomb of the Fugger and the predominant Protestant apse and a side chapel with frescoes from the Romanesque period. In addition, the Luther staircase, old wooden staircase. In a side chapel the Jerusalem 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.
