St. Anne's Church Murau

St. Anne's Church was built in around 1400 to commemorate a theft of the host; built at the spot where the Blessed Sacrament was later found.

All the rich church fittings of the Late Medieval period can still be seen at the St. Anne's Cemetery Church. The rib-vaulted nave adjoins the small choir; an organ gallery with richly traced breastwork has been positioned in this key area. One special feature of St. Anne's Church is its exquisite, uniform glass window decoration, which adorns the three choir termination windows. Of the Gothic fittings, there remains a winged altar under a stone baldachin (depicting the discovery of the host), the Virgin and Child with St. Anne in the centre of the Baroque high altar, and numerous frescoes. The splendid triumphal arch fresco of the Jesse Tree is dated to 1518. The pews featuring carved bird heads are from the 17th century. In 1972 and 1974, the interior of the church and the exterior facade were renovated. The church received new bells in later years.
