At the Sendeanlage Holzlehen is the "Himmelsknoten". This is a monument of the Guilde Scouts who have kept their forum for over 40 years in Grossarl. A forest trail leads to the Mooslehenalm. Continue to the Igltalalm (Niggeltalalm).

A beautiful waterwheel, which was formerly used for butter stirring, is at the little brook in front of the hut. This mountain hut is a children's paradise - a stream and a small pond, a large playground, cats, dogs, ducks...

Author’s recommendation

The Igltalalm is a paradise for children and you can reach it also if the weather is not that good.
