    The pilgrimage church of Maria Schnee, one of the most important pilgrimage churches in Central Swabia, is located west of the town of Markt Rettenbach. On the old road to Ottobeuren. The feast of Maria Schnee on the 5th of August goes back to a dream of a Roman childless couple, who had promised the Virgin Mary to bequeath his fortune to the Church. In the dream, the Blessed Mother invited the couple to build a church there, where the next day snow would lie. The following day, the Esquiline, one of the seven hills of Rome, covered a light blanket of snow. At this point, the church of Santa Maria Maggiore was built.
