Marling (Marlengo) is my native village. It lies on the foot of the "Marlinger Berg"
near Meran at about 363 m above sea-level and has approx. 2000 inhabitants.
I know, this is a bad composite photograph, but so you can get an impression of the view from
the church in Marling's village-center. You look eastwards and see the
health resort Meran, the villages Dorf Tirol and Schenna and mount "Ifinger".
These are two pictures of Meran taken from the "Marlinger Berg". You can clearly see the (horse-) race course.

Auer (Ora) is a small village at 50 km from Marling.
I went to the "Agricultural" high school and lived there for 5 years.

The "Etschtal"-valley is an immense apple-plantage.

Aldein is my preferred holiday destination in South Tyrol.
It is a small village, not far from Auer, at about 1.200 m above sea-level.
My grandfather's house at Aldein, now used as a
holiday-cottage for the whole family-"Clan".
On hot summer-days it is a pleasure to take a bath in the "Göller See",
a small lake in the forest reachable only by foot (20 min).

Residential quarter in Aldein
Typical farm-building in Aldein
Aldein is dominated by two mountains:
"Weißhorn" (white peak, 2316 m)
and "Schwarzhorn" (black peak, 2439 m)
The "Bletterbach"-river, originating on the Weißhorn,
formed this gorge in millions of years.
Now it is known also as the "Canyon of South Tyrol".

Spectacular view on the Dolomite mountains
This is a very special photo of the Dolomite-mountains in South Tyrol.
The Boeing 747-400 is flying at an altitude of 33.000 feet,
while passengers can enjoy an early-morning-view of the "Sellastock",
the "Langkofel", the "Schlern" and the "Pordoi-Joch"
