Paragliding above Zell am See

You’ve always dreamt of being able to fly? Let this dream come true on the “sun child” of the Alps! The great thermal uplift makes Zell’s landmark mountain a perfect launching site for paragliders and hang-gliders.

And if you can’t fly yourself, you can take off by way of a tandem flight with one of the Schmitten’s certified pilots. Seize this unique opportunity to see the Pinzgau’s alpine landscape from above. 

What about bad weather days?

Even on the “sun child” of the Alps, the sun doesn’t shine every single day! You’d like to experience the mountains on rainy days too? That’s possible during a breakfast at the AreitLounge or coffee and cake at Franzl, for instance. The “Areit 1400” family exposition with its Games Corner is another great option for bad weather days on the mountain.
