The Waalweg trail -Hiking along the irrigation channel
Spectacular views of the surrounding mountains can be seen along the entire length of the Marlinger Waalweg trail. The agricultural landscape lining the irrigation channels is also impressive, with meadows and forests alternating with vineyards and orchards. Along the Marlinger Waalweg trail there are also impressive views of the Merano basin, the Val Passiria/Passeier Valley, and the imposing Texelgruppe mountain range.

Turn-by-turn directions

The route climbs from the centre of Marling along path no. 35 or 35 B through orchards up to the Waalweg (or irrigation channel trail). From here it heads – accompanied by lovely views - toward Lana. The route then passes Gasthaus Waalheim (from where it is possible to make an early descent back to Marling/Marlengo) above the Mitterterz/Terzo di Mezzo area of the village until finally crossing the road leading to Lebenberg/Monteleone Castle. Follow street Lebenbergerstrasse/V. Monteleone for a few hundred meters downhill, then turn left across Mitterterzerstrasse past attractive farmsteads back to Marling/Marlengo.
