Ice Sculptures and Fairy Tales

Ice Sculpture at Mainz, Germany

One of the Three Kings

I hope you are all dressed warmly!   Come and enjoy the wonderful snow and ice sculptures at Eiswelt Mainz in Germany.   We really enjoyed our visit with our grandchildren,  though by the time we got to the end, we were feeling a bit chilly and were very glad of the coffee and hot chocolate in the warmth of the cafe!  Next time we will wear a few extra layers!

There were so many different sculptures  – cathedrals, cartoon characters,  nativity scenes, fairy tales, chairs, furniture, even the Grim Reaper!  Check out this great gingerbread man!
