The old Etsch Valley bottom near Bozen

Old valley bottom of the Etsch River (yellow) - "Überetsch" (Eppan). Behind the hill at left is Bozen. View from Meran to the South.

The river Eisack (left) dug its own bed (red) when the Etsch Glacier pushed it to the left. River Etsch (center) followed and eventually, the new river bed is lower than the previous one.
