Old tradition in Marling/Marlengo - lime pit and lime kilns
10 minutes‘ walk from the Schwarze Lacke habitat are the lime pit and lime kilns, which were an important source of employment for many Marling residents until 1960. Limestone was fired in them until that date. This ancient tradition only died out with the emergence of cement.
