The Benevolent Queen an her six noblemen

Once upon a time, there was a Benevolent Queen. Even today, the Bischofsmütze in Filzmoos reminds of the queen with its striking appearance. Her biggest goal was to make the world better. She placed her personal protection on all living things: people, animals, plants. Her greatest concern was that happiness, contentment and prosperity reigned in her empire. Nobody should suffer hunger or need, nobody should worry about their wellbeing. For her, harmony, respect and humility were as important as love, freedom and community.

Six noblemen were her confidants. The Watchman, the Bearer of Secrets, the Scout, the Poet, the Magician and the Healer advised the queen. Together they solved the concerns and they were all concerned with the well-being of their empire.

We still feel the lessons of the Benevolent Queen and her noblemen today: We follow their paths, listen to the whispering of the trees and discover their hidden messages. The Benevolent Queen and her noblemen were petrified and turned into seven peaks. Today they are highly visible and characteristic of the landscape in the Salzburg sports world.

Nobleman Penkkopf in Wagrain-Kleinarl

The Magician

Wild bees, bumblebees and butterflies accompany you on the ascent to the Penkkopf. The picturesque view from the Penkkopf makes you realize that life is a wonderful gift. Even the Benevolent Queen sometimes forgot how beautiful life is. With a lot of stress in everyday life, she lost her lightness. But then thank God the Magicians entered her live and persuaded her to sing, dance and laugh. With the Magician it is easy to bring passion and ease back into life.

During the ritual at the Penkkopf we leave our comfort zones and do things for which we are actually too cowardly. The most important thing: We alone decide what we want - maybe it is a real challenge?

Bischofsmütze in Filzmoos

The Benevolent Queen

The Bischofsmütze gives hikers a glimpse of the little things along the way: wild herbs, beetles and secret messages. The Benevolent Queen was a wise regent. The wellbeing of all living beings was very important to her. She acted with love and was able to act generously and carefully. She also knew that whoever falls for the superficial appearance is plagued by envy, resentment and jealousy. She wanted to open up the beauty of the world to everyone.
