Offbeat Traveler: Church of snow and ice opens in Bavaria, Germany
Last Wednesday, a church made of snow and ice opened in Mitterfirmiansreut, a town in southeastern Germany about 100 miles northeast of Munich, marking the 100th anniversary of an act of protest. A century ago, Mitterfirmiansreut residents demanded a church in their town. When they were denied, they built their own out of snow and ice.
