Elvis rocks the Ritten

Elvis Presley has still many fans all over the world, also in South Tyrol.

Up to September 1, 2013 runs in Oberbozen/Soprabolzano on the Ritten/Renon a nice exhibition with many personal items of the "King of the Rock".

His guitar in "Viva Las Vegas"

Elvis bought this shirt in October 1956 and took it to the commercials of his film "Love Me Tender"

Weather Station with a stone

Watch the stone and you know which weather we have

If the stone is wet, we have rain
If the stone is white, we have snow
If the stone moves, we have storm
If the stone is invisible, we have fog
If the stone is dry, we have sun
If the stone is fell down, we had an earthquake

Benches around the Durnholz Lake

The Durnholz Lake is a small alpine lake at the end of the Sarntal.
You can walk around, ( about an 1 hour walk ), sit down on one (or more)
of the many new wooden benches and admire the wonderful landscape.

I didn't count them, but there are surely 15-20 new benches to sit down and relax.

Ferragosto (August, 15) is a public holiday in South Tyrol, as in whole Italy.
In many localities are held folk festivals, so as here in Unsere Liebe Frau im Walde.

Wiener Schnitzel, polenta with chanterelles and sausage, grilled chicken, grilled pork chop with potato salad, goulash with polenta, sausage with bread, pommes frittes...

Often a tent is issued because the weather is not always safe.
