Relics of St. Konrad are under the altar. There are displays throughout the cloister explaining the history of the church and St. Konrad's life.

Its baroque interior was removed in 1864 and renewed in Romanesque style. In 1953 the knighthood in Rome decided that former Church St. Anna could keep the title of Holy brother Konrad. Converted in 1960. The Church is as usual Fransciscan simple. Crucifixion group in the choir and central altar with canopy (Siegfried Moroder, South Tyrol) with underneath a glass sarcophagus which protects the main relic: the bones of Holy Konrad rest in a silver replica of the Holy man, his head in a separate housing. Opposite the main entrance of the church memorabilia of the Holy brother Konrad are preserved in a museum. Accessible since 1965 is the crypt in which brother Konrad originally was buried.…
