This surreal looking mountain is just like a fairy tale winter wonderland after being covered in 4ft of snow.  With woodland and even a weather station completely covered in snow, trees and other vegetation are almost unrecognisable.<br />
<br />
The stunning pictures of the heavy snow fall were taken up the 4,000ft high Fichtelberg mountain in Saxony, Germany.  Grocer Christoph Schaarschmidt captured the incredible scenes after travelling an hour and a half from his home and hiking through the deep snow to get to the weather station.
