There needn't be a dull day ever again as a house in Germany turns into a giant musical instrument when it rains!

While rain isn't normally something to sing about, this house situated in the city of Dresden looks set to change that and have you humming along to nothing but sweet melodies.

When it rains, water is channelled down the front of the tall blue building through a system of drains and funnels attached on the outside.

The singing house, which is part of an arts project called the Courtyard of Elements, has attracted plenty of tourists.

But the sound of rain is also music to the ears of its creators, sculptor Annette Paul and designers Christoph Rossner and Andre Tempel, who live in the house!

If this house was in the UK, we'd definitely be tapping our feet and humming along to 'Singin' In The Rain'!
