In Bad Schwalbach, students were snowed in at a school. District fire chief Michael Ehresmann described the situation as exceptional, reporting falling trees.
A persistent problem, because the German Weather Service (DWD) issued an official ice warning last night for the second time in a row, which affects a large part of Germany and is still in force until 11 a.m. In view of the current weather situation, three northern federal states could have a particularly difficult time.
Snow and slippery conditions have caused chaotic conditions in parts of Hesse and also in some other federal states. There were several accidents. In a comprehensive school in Bad Schwalbach, 30 students and teachers were temporarily stranded. They were treated and were able to be brought home by the fire brigade late Monday evening.

Der einzige Weg, der aktuell nach Taunusstein, Bad Schwalbach und die umliegenden Kommunen im mittleren Teil des Rheingau-Taunus-Kreises führt, ist über die A3 und die B275. Die Kreisverwaltung bittet noch einmal eindringlich darum, keine Absperrungen zu umfahren, da dort Lebensgefahr bestehe und die Arbeit der Rettungskräfte behindert werde.
