'St. Annenkirche in Annaberg-Buchholz.'

When elsewhere the Renaissance had started, in Germany the late gothic style celebrated its last jolt of splendour. The vaults of the St. Annenkirche in Annaberg-Buchholz date from 1513. Actually they are self-supporting; the ribs were added later and have solely a decorative function. Photo Paul Smit.
