At the Sendeanlage Holzlehen is the "Himmelsknoten". A forest trail leads to the Niggeltalalm (Igltalalm).

This area is a paradise for children - there is a waterwheel, a small pond, a large playground, cats, dogs, ducks... The parents enjoy the self-made delicacies.

The younger children, however, cannot hike to the Heukareck because this is a real mountain tour. On a beautiful hiking path you cross the Igltal. This is particularly beautiful place during the early summer - due to the various flowers in this area. You continue on a nice ascent to the Heukareck. From here you have a wonderful view to the Salzach valley - if the weather is very clear you can see the city of Salzburg.

You hike back on the same route to the Igltalalm.
