Snowchurch in Mitterfirmiansreut

The people in the village with unpronounceable name have decided to revive the 100-year old snow church!

In 1911, the people there built a church out of snow and ice in protest to the world. They were angry because during the winter it was very difficult for them to visit the church in the nearby village. As the villagers were quite poor, they could not afford to build a normal church so they decided to build one out of snow

So, today again tourists can visit the coldish place of worship. I guess, nowadays in Bavaria they could afford a cathedral, but a snow church is also nice :=)
