Trumpet magic in Advent in the Anna Church

The wonderfully restored St. Anna, THE Baroque insider tip in Vienna's city centre, opens its doors again for Advent concerts in a peaceful atmosphere. The heated church, inaugurated by Empress Maria Theresia, is adorned with magnificent frescoes by Daniel Gran, the artist who also created the fresco cycle in the dome of the ceremonial hall of the National Library of Vienna.


The programme ranges from the Viennese Classic period to the most beautiful Austrian and international Advent songs, masterfully interpreted by the trumpet player and organist - a joyful and joyful evening that gets you in Christmas mood and which you should not miss.


Magic Trumpet at St. Anna Church invites you to pause for a while - moments in which you can escape the hustle and bustle of the pre-Christmas period and concentrate on what is essential.

St. Annes´s Church

St. Anne's Church (German: Annakirche) is located in Vienna, Austria, and has been administered by the Oblates of St. Francis de Sales since 1906. A relic of Saint Anne—her right hand—is kept in a rich Baroque setting and exhibited every year on July 26.

St. Anne's chapel existed since 1320. In 1518, the Gothic church was consecrated on the occasion of Saint Anne's Day (26 July). The church was administered first by the Poor Clare Sisters, then by the Jesuits. Between 1629 and 1634, the Jesuits started the Baroquisation of the Gothic church. After a fire in 1747, Pozzo's pupil Christoph Tausch transformed it into late baroque using trompe l'oeil techniques. On 25 June 1747 lightning struck the tower of the church, burning down the roof framing but leaving intact the frescos. In 1751, Daniel Gran began the renovation of the interior, blackened by candle smoke. After starting to work in the church in 1897, the Oblates of St. Francis de Sales received the church in 1906.
