At the bottom of the valley, near the exit of the Iseltal Valley, below the rugged peaks of the Schober Group, is the municipality of Ainet.

The Sacred Heart Church is also worth a visit. In addition, the small village has produced a big son: the academic sculptor Jakob Gibler was born in Ainet and taught there. Today his works can be found both in Admont Abbey and in the Vienna Votive Church. And of course in Ainet.

In and around the village, nature provides all the beauties that are so characteristic of Osttirol.
