This pleasant promenade makes you enjoy the village of Marlengo from a different perspective.
Twelve kilometers long, the Marlinger Waalweg trail is a popular hiking trail which runs along the former irrigation channels, the longest of its kind in South Tyrol. Starting at the Töllbrücke bridge, the 250 year-old path gently ascends through apple orchards and woods to firmer and more level ground. After pausing to admire the medieval Lebenberg Castle, hikers continue slightly downhill along the slope of Marling mountain to the village of Lana.
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.
The 250 years old irrigation channel path starts in Tel and leads flatly through the villages of Foresta, Marlengo, Cermes and Lana. The trail runs almost level along the irrigation canal and is ideal for families and children. Deciduous forests, meadows and blooming fruit orchards surround the Waalweg path.
