The thermodynamics of the finite temperature QCD crossover is investigated with a low-energy effective description. The resulting pressure and trace anomaly are in very good agreement with corresponding results from lattice Monte-Carlo simulations. Effects of the chiral anomaly on the phase structure are explored and results for the temperature dependence of the anomalously large mass of the $\eta'$-meson are presented.
