Riding the wind
It’s not easy to pinpoint a better take-off spot for hang gliders and paragliders. The extraordinarily good thermal lift on the Schmittenhöhe offers truly ideal conditions for take-off. That means the Schmitten has long since lost its original identity as a secret tip, of course, today it numbers among the most desirable hotspots in the Alps.
Starting in about May, airbourne fans devote themselves to the unbounded pleasures of flying. The wide-ranging meadows all around the summit provide pilots with lots of elbow room to spread out their equipment and prepare for the launch. On the broad, generous grounds, they can whisk skyward in any direction they choose.
Trying out paragliding
Feeling good on the Schmitten is not just limited to practiced pros. Experienced tandem pilots accompany interested paraglider neophytes on an unforgettable flight down to the valley. Listed below are various partner-associates who will be happy to take you on a flying tandem journey.
