Background: Germanys first Autobahn Church ( Katholic ) is now finished and was consecrated on Sunday 10, 1958 0900. The small church built from gifts of the rolling German people is placed close to the Autobahn between Augsburgs and Ulm, correct Adelzried, and is visible to the racers from both sides. The consecration job did Augsburgs Bishop Dr. Kourad Freundorfer and many drivers had stopped to be at presence. The Bishop said this small church is though to be a resthouse for higher necessities despite those many Restaurants along the highway. He also added that this house made of wood is able to reduce traffic accidents to warn the racing people to drive carefully and to be kind on route. It is a very simple building also inside, open for everybody willing to stop there and far away of the modern churches of today.
