Ice, ice, baby

The latest issue of Germanwings contains an interesting story from Iceland on Europe’s longest man-made ice tunnel. It is burrowed 550 metres deep into the Langjökull glacier and ends in an eerily lit cave that doubles as a chapel for weddings and bar mitzvahs. It opened to visitors for the first time this summer. Credit to editor Kerstin Zumstein for digging out the story and to regular Ink photographer Tim White for the photography.

This is incidentally the last issue of Germanwings in its current form, as Germanwings the airline merges with Eurowings; going forward the new magazine will just be called GermanEuro Wings. (Posted by AndrewH)
