The Chapel of St. Anna is located in Trun. The chapel is open all day.



October 18, 1500, the chapel of St. Mary in Trun was consecrated in honor of the Virgin Mary, her mother Anna and St. Andrew, Nicholas, Wolfgang and Helene. It is not to be assumed that the chapel was built in memory of the Upper Covenant invoked under the maple. The patron saint of the Covenant was St. George. The patrons St. Anna, Wolfgang and Helene point more to a relationship with mining. In 1515 the chapel of St. Anna was consecrated again. Presumably, a radical new building was built in 1500 and the interior was renewed by 1515. The present chapel, a new building from 1704 with three altars, dated from 1778, wall paintings and sayings in the vestibule.
