St Anna Kirche information
Often regarded as the first Renaissance church in Germany, the rather plain-looking (and well-hidden) St Anna Kirche contains a bevy of treasures, as well as the sumptuous Fuggerkapelle , where Jacob Fugger and his brothers lie buried, and the lavishly frescoed Goldschmiedekapelle (Goldsmiths' Chapel; 1420). The church played an important role during the Reformation. In 1518 Martin Luther, in town to defend his beliefs before the papal legate, stayed at what was then a Carmelite monastery. His rooms have been turned into the Lutherstiege , a small museum about the Reformation, under renovation at the time of writing.
