    Parish Church “Maria Himmelfahrt”
    Meran/Merano and environs

    This church was first mentioned as long ago as 1166. It was rebuilt in 1251 and extended in around 1480, when the bell tower was built, of which after a fire only the lower saddle roof has been preserved. Today part of the old church serves as a chapel, and part as a vestry. The large bell, Annamaria, which weighs 3,163 kg and dates from 1847, is noteworthy. The new Pfarrkirche Maria Himmelfahrt parish church was consecrated in 1901. This neo Gothic place of worship with three naves was built to plans by the Viennese architect, Anton Weber. The main altar, the mosaic, side altars, wooden sculptures and four reliefs in the chancel are all worth seeing. 2002 saw the restoration of the pneumatic organ built by Josef Behmann in 1911, which is a protected monument. The sound of the church bells ringing even inspired Franz Liszt to compose “Ihr Glocken von Marling” (Bells of Marling). There is a replica of Marling parish church in Selsley, England.

    The Marlengo Apple Crown
    Meran/Merano and environs

    The Grape Festival is staged in Merano/Meran every year, on the third weekend in October. Open-air concerts and the large procession with a number of decorated floats are the highlight of the traditional “Autumn in Merano” events program. But this year the large procession and the concerts take not place.

    Of all the eye-catching floats on parade, the Apple Crown float from Marlengo/Marling tops them all. Made up of over half a ton of apples and 700 dianthus flowers, the Apple Crown float goes back as far as the Grape Festival in 1949 and still remains an integral part of the procession today. Even at the end of the Festival, the Apple Crown is kept on show for a few weeks at the Marlengo town square.

    During the procession the float is drawn by four magnificent horses, of the local Haflinger breed. The Apple Crown float contains baskets filled with “Jonagold“ apples, which are handed out to enthusiastic spectators cheering the procession. The float also carries a number of children while six couples in traditional local costumes walk alongside, three on one side and the other three on the other. Each couple carries baskets brimming with typical autumn fare, such as apples, grapes and chestnuts.

    High mountain road of Marlengo
    Meran/Merano and environs

    The Marlengo high mountain road leads you from one farmhouse to the next. After the second turn from the Bergerstrasse, you will pass the Inner-Holzmair, later on the Ausser-Holzmair and finally the Senn am Egg, which is still run as a pub today. The impressions you have while walking along the Marlengo high mountain road come partly from these farmhouses, but also from the mixed forest, some orchards, meadows, majestic chestnut trees, as well as from the wide view across the burgrave's office and its surrounding mountains and slopes. Description: From Marlengo (363 metres), you will follow road number 33, which will lead you first of all along the Bergerstrasse in a south-westerly direction passing the Gasthaus Waalheim. From here you walk up to the sharp bend just above the Halbweg. From here, turn right and walk along the Marlengo high mountain road (well marked, cannot be missed), which leads you slightly up and down through meadows and forests, as well as along the above named farmhouses (highest part of the road = approx. 780 metres). Walk in a northerly direction until you come to the Senn am Egg (698 metres), where the high mountain road will end. Then follow mark number 35 and descend to Marlengo. However, it is far more rewarding to follow the marked forest path via the Josefsberg in the direction of Forst, then descend to the Marlin irrigation channel road and follow this road through forests and orchards to the lovely St. Felix chapel (which is unfortunately situated below a power line). Walk in a southerly direction to the Waldschenke and from there descend to Marlengo.

    Difference in altitude: approx. 420 metres Total walking time: approx. 4 to 5 hours

    Bakery
    The South Tyrolean Wine Road

    Once the "Wirtshaus am Steg". In 1523 the Leb family lived here. Ulrich Leb, called Uez, was a master tailor. In 1568, a bakery with master baker Hans Taz is mentioned for the first time on the lower floor. On the upper floor is the inn, which was probably run as such until the first half of the 17th century. Attempts to make it an inn again in 1670 and 1699 were successfully stopped by the then existing inns "Am Löwen" and "An der Rose" with reference to the few guest houses. After numerous changes of ownership in the following decades, several doctors of wounds moved in here one after the other from 1774 onwards. Only with the Wegscheider family, who have owned the house for several generations, does this place regain its former purpose and become a village bakery and also an inn again.

    The two oculi in the attic are remarkable. These openings, also called "ox eyes", are still a widespread element in the façades of historic houses in Montan today.
