Power place in Tyrol: “Wildschütz” viewpoint in Niederndorf
Based on the principle of natural resonance
Well hidden, amidst the Niederndorf forest on the Hechenberg toboggan run, there is a place that seems far removed from everyday life. The Wildschütz viewing platform, just a few minutes from the centre of Niederndorf, invites you to lean back, relax and contemplate.
Over the rooftops of Niederndorf.
On Hechenberg in Niederndorf, both visitors and locals revitalise at a special spot: The Wildschütz viewpoint. From the base curve of the Hechenberg toboggan run a small path leads left through beautiful forests to one of the most beautiful places in the village. “Lass nichts Böses in Deinen Gedanken sein!” (Let your thoughts be free of evil) is written on the plaque that greets you on arrival at the beautiful viewpoint.

A place of love and thankfulness
In the past, couples needed to keep their relationship secret for a while before the parents were allowed to know about it. To avoid suspicion, the girls often went to Wildschütz under the pretext of "knitting with friends". In reality they spent the time with their boyfriends. They sang, played music, laughed and got to know each other. These days the former youth meeting point has become a place of love and thankfulness, as shown by a stone sculpture with engraved quote.
Viewpoint with a view fit for a Kaiser
But it's not only the historical backstory that makes the location worth a visit. From the quiet viewpoint, above the roofs of Niederndorf, you can look down on the town centre of the tranquil village. The panoramic view of the Zahmer and Wilder Kaiser is breath-taking. Benches invite you to linger and enjoy, and the giant wind chimes, designed by local sculptor Isidor Winkler, can sometimes be heard all the way down the valley. The peace that you feel and the enjoyment of the beautiful view makes the Wildschütz power place something special.
