How good is this? This beautiful church is made entirely of ice and is situated in a small town called Mitterfirmiansreut in Germany near the Czech border.

The church is more than 20 meters or 65.62 feet long, 10 meters or 32.81 feet wide and has a 17 meter or 55.77 feet tower. It’s actually a replacement for a church that was originally built from ice in 1911.

I don’t know how long it took to build, but it would have taken a lot of work, to put this all together. I am constantly amazed at what can be achieved when people work together.
