“neo-Baroque style”
Review of Basilika St. Anna

Basilika St. Anna
Reviewed 23 November 2011

One of the finest in Altötting! Beginning 19th century was the largest church, the collegiate church, too small for the growing number of pilgrims. Thus arose in 1910-1912 St. Anna, construction style neo-Baroque (architect Johannes Schott): 83 m inside length, 27 m wide, 24 metres high, the largest church in Altötting. Maria men congregation bought the building plot. Patron was his Royal Highness Prince regent Ludwig of Bavaria. Leasehold went to the Bavarian Capuchin. Capacity: 8000, consecrated in 1912, in 1913, elevated by Pope Pius X to Papal Basilica. On the facade four large sculptures (each 1000 kilograms heavy!) remind of the ancestors of Anna: Adam, Jesse (father of David), David and Abraham. its interior was completed in 1917: large main altar, 12 side altars. The heart of the main altar was donated by Prince Regent Luitpold. The main altar sculpture (Leonhard Thoma) shows the Holy Anna with daughter Mary during her childhood. Effigy Pope Pius X, Prince regent Luitpold and former guardian P Dominikus Wierl.
