St. Anna

St. Anna

Sailors from the Inn supposedly built the early church around 1300 out of gratitude for the salvation from water shortage of St Anna.

Master builder Hans Wechselperger then built a late Gothic church. The Gothic glass paintings, the panel paintings and the tortoiseshell painting on the high altar are wonderful. The discovery of mother-of-pearl painting (tortoiseshell) on the baroque high altar caused a sensation. Three stained-glass windows in 1523, two panel paintings of a late Gothic altar (late 15th century).In 1520 St. Anna was finished and a lively pilgrimage began. Johann Birndorfer of Parzham decided to enter the monastery here. The devout pilgrim became St Brother Conrad. From the pilgrimage church of St. Anna, take the same route back to Ering, under the B 12, along St. Annastraße, past the outdoor swimming pool and the cemetery to Passauer Straße. Turn left and go to the junction of Innwerkstraße, which turns right. Continue on this road until just before the information centre for the European reservation Unterer Inn. Here the path bends to the left. Following the signs for Via Nova, you pass through Asperl and Urfar. The path then leaves Via Nova, branches off to the right in the village and leads up the Inndamm and along this until shortly before Aigen am Inn. We are now back on Via Nova. The signs point to Aigen on the left. We follow it into the village, to the St. Leonhard pilgrimage church.
