The not-for-profit Aktionskreis Edling Kultur und Heimat promotes cultural activities as well as local traditions. Many of its activities take place at a re-natured gravel pit cum amphitheater. Affectionately named the "Stoa", the site actually includes a stoa or meeting place with a column-supported portico featuring a diArco Vaulted Ceiling. The name Stoa, however, pre-dates the portico (and diArco GmbH), and in the bavarian dialect means "the stone", in honor of the huge boulder which dominates the site. Unearthed during quarry operations in 1989, it found its way from Tyrolian Kramsach to Edling during the last ice age.
The dining- and public-room at the vacation farm "beim kiasn" in Halfing near Rosenheim features a diArco vaulted ceiling.
