Lackenkogel - Der Wächter


The Watchman did everything to protect “his“ queen. Yet he also instructed the powerful ruler how to protect herself. She had to feel her own strengths and develop self-confidence. In challenging situations, she regularly sought his advice. He taught her to go through life being vigilant, courageous and persevering.

The Watchman and the Salzburger Summit Game

During the Salzburger Summit Game you’ll come into contact with the powerful energy of the Watchman: the mountain is impressive, beautiful and a little challenging. Those reaching its summit feel invincible. A stimulating feeling.

Speciality of the Lackenkogel

The Lackenkogel is Altenmarkt’s local mountain: from its peak you can see as far as the Watzmann and the Grossglockner. The Lackenalm below the summit is most certainly one of the most scenic alpine pasture areas in the region.

The ritual on the Lackenkogel

The ritual on the Lackenkogel awakens the watchman within you: it charges you with good energy, makes you courageous, strong and flexible. This ritual can offer you, together with the talisman, support in your everyday life.

Wer sind die „Wohlwollende Königin und ihre Edelmänner“?

Die „Wohlwollende Königin und ihre Edelmänner“ waren einst eine mächtige Herrscherin und ihre weisen Berater. Mittlerweile längst versteinert, erinnert heute die sieben Berge Bischofsmütze, Penkkopf, Hochgründeck, Saukarfunktel, Gerzkopf, Rossbrand und Lackenkogel an die Legende.

How difficult are the tours?

The tours are all easy to medium difficult and can be undertaken by adults as well as children. There are no climbing passages or exposed spots.

What are the rituals all about?

For each summit a ritual has been concepted around the peculiarities of the Queen, the Noblemen and their messages to us human beings. Thus, for example, the Bearer of Secret’s ritual concerns our most secret wishes, the Poet’s ritual concerns our talents and the Magician’s ritual is all about leaving your comfort zone. The rituals should be taken as an invitation or inspiration and are not obligatory.
