On September 12, 2021, the church Mariä Himmelfahrt with a new extension was consecrated in the community of Waldfenster. The baroque Roman Catholic Church Mariä Himmelfahrt (1804) received an extension in the 1960s, the St. Pius Church. When the condition of the aging Sankt-Pius-Kirche required renovation, it was decided in 2015 to demolish the outdated building, to replace it with a new extension and to renovate the Church in its original form. MÄCKLERARCHITEKTEN focused on the careful handling of the structure of the historic existing building.
