In the northern part of the municipality, between the villages of Neukirchendorf and Mitteredt, is the Ameisberg, a foothill of the Großer Schefberg (= highest elevation in the municipality at 791 metres), which forms part of a range of hills that characterise the landscape. The highest point of the Ameisberg (732 m), a rockfall with a vertical drop of approx. 10 m on the south side, is called Hochholzstein by the local population and has been a popular excursion and hiking destination for the inhabitants of the surrounding region for generations.

From here, Kopfing literally lies at your feet and the view continues over the Hausruck into the Alpine foothills to the Eisenwurzen, Sengsengebirge, Traunstein, Höllengebirge, Schafberg, Untersberg and Watzmann mountains. On particularly clear days, you can also see the majestic Alpine peaks such as Ötscher, Eisenerz Alps, Gesäuse, Totes Gebirge with Grosser Priel, Dachstein, Tennengebirge, Hochkönig and Loferer Steinberge.
Due to its "panoramic" location, this area could have served as a signalling fireplace for the Celts. It is undisputed that the Celts settled in this - according to Tacitus - eerie landscape, disfigured by its forests and swamps. Numerous field and place names still in use in the area bear witness to this.

About 200 metres away from the Hochholzstein, surrounded by high forest, there are some huge, mystical and mythical boulders. It cannot be ruled out that this place served as a place of worship or sacrifice for the Celts. It is said that these stones radiate "positive energy" (which some visitors can "feel"). Is this, in addition to the beautiful view, another reason for the attraction of this place? A place where you feel at ease is always a favourite place to visit. Especially in today's hectic times, it's simply good to "switch off" sometimes. The Ameisberg is certainly a particularly suitable place for this. This vantage point can be reached via hiking trail no. 3 "Blick ins Land".
