Over the weekend, all flights at Munich’s airport were cancelled due to a winter storm that affected travel throughout the region by dumping snow over southern Germany, parts of Austria, Switzerland, and the Czech Republic.
Social media users shared a video clip of one of the planes at Munich Airport in southern Germany that had “frozen” as a result of the region’s intense snowfall. The plane appeared to be stuck in the snow and to be attached to the ground in the video.
The airport first declared that flights would be canceled until noon on Saturday, but later changed its announcement to 6 a.m. on Sunday. Additional airports in the area, such as Zurich, the financial hub of Switzerland, also declared delays and cancellations due to severe weather.
Germany’s national railway reported that trains to and from Munich’s central station had also been stopped, and that travelers should postpone or reroute their trips. Some passengers in Munich and the nearby city of Ulm spent Friday night (Saturday NZT) on trains as a result of the halt, according to the report.
