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.
The lime pit is located on Marling's local mountain, the mountain Vigiljoch/ San Vigilio, and can therefore only be reached on foot. There are different possibilities to rech the habitat: above the Eggerhöfe or Almboden (Töll/Tel/ and Quadrat/Quadrato) or with the cable car Vigiljoch/Monte San Viglio first up and then ont the trail no. 7 to the black lacquer.
