In Norway there is a town called Hell, that regulary freezes over. However this is ironic, since hell means luck in norwegian

Norway and Michigan must be favourite places to visit for those who were rejected with "when Hell freezes over" I suppose. They take a picture, send it to that person with a message: "Hell has frozen over. Now will you go out with me?"

I really like the sign at the railroad station there: http://exviking.net/man/small/image/hell-gods.jpg

(it just means Hell - goods (or cargo) expedition)

It can also be mentioned that Hells Angels in Bergen, Norway, have their HQ in an old railroad tunnel/workshop in Helldal. They call their HQ "Angel's Place".

So you could say that their address is:
Hells Angels
Angel's Place
Hell's Valley
Bergen

Although I believe it would be just as efficient to use the proper street address.

The name of the town however comes from Old Norse "hellir", meaning overhang or cave.
