Klosterkirche St. Anna (Franciscan Monastery Church of St. Anne)

Klosterkirche St. Anna (Franciscan Monastery Church of St. Anne) Review

This striking example of the two Asam brothers' work in the Lehel district impresses visitors with its sense of movement and heroic scale. The ceiling fresco from 1729 by Cosmas Damian Asam glows in all its original glory. The ornate altar was also designed by the Asam brothers. Towering over the delicate little church, on the opposite side of the street, is the neo-Romanesque bulk of the 19th-century parish church of St. Anne. Stop at one of the stylish cafés, restaurants, and patisseries gathered at the junction of St.-Anna-Str. and Gewürzmühlstr., about 250 feet from the churches.
