Paragliding in the Bavarian Alps – Up Close to the Clouds
Whether on the Unternberg or Rauschberg – freedom is limitless when you are paragliding! Paragliders love the constant up-winds on the Unternberg, hang-gliders enjoy the thermal activity on the Rauschberg and the convenient ride up the mountain thanks to the Rauschberg cable car – enjoy your flight!
The Rauschberg is home to hang-gliders. Take the Rauschberg cable car up the mountain and start off from a ramp – a spectacular sight for spectators too. Here you can start in three directions, north, west and south-east, and will enjoy the best thermal activity between 10:00 am and 8:00 pm. Here, hang-gliders are in seventh heaven and the starting possibilities for paragliding are simply superb.
The Unternberg is the Rauschberg’s little brother. But even when hang-gliding, one thing is for sure: it isn’t a Bavaria holiday without a flight on the Unternberg! It has plenty to offer: the constant up-winds from the valley allow hours of soaring along the side of the slope from midday to sunset. You can easily fly to the large landing area in Baerngschwendt and, thanks to the short distance, short flights can be worked into any holiday programme.
Activity holidays in the Alps – why not give paragliding a try!
You don’t have to know how to paraglide or hang-glide in order to enjoy the freedom in Bavaria’s skies. On a tandem flight, you can experience the high altitude both safely and spectacularly!
