"Stoanerne Mandln" in Langtaufers (Valley).
One man took a stone and put it on another stone, he still took another stone and put it on the top, and so on... A second man saw this and did the same, then a third, a fourth and so on ... So an entire city arose....Well, a city is not true because they are not towers and not skyscrapers.
They are STONE MEN, we call them "Stoanerne Mandln".
On the mountains were never built towers or high-rise buildings, but just stone men or stone figures.
South Tyrolean: "Stoanerne Mandln"
German: "Steinerne Männchen" or "Steinerne Männlein"
