A church in southern Denmark has been opened up for players of the popular mobile phone game Pokemon Go, Danish broadcaster DR reported Friday.
"I thought it was a good way to reach the youth," said Michael Westh, vicar of the church in the small town of Kliplev, southern Jutland, not far from the German border.
He said players were welcome into the church to search for printed photos of some of the computer-generated characters that they can view through their smartphone cameras.
The words ice cream or coke are printed on the reverse of the photo, showing the player's reward.
"Of course you need a reward," Westh told DR, adding that a dozen or so players have so far participated.
"It's great, since it also opens up the church. They realize that it's OK to enter. You can come in if you're happy or sad," he said.
Westh admitted that he too has caught the Pokemon bug and has enjoyed learning how to play from the young people.
The church is open for Pokemon hunts between 10 am and 12 pm (0800-1000 GMT) and 2 to 4 pm on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays.
