Paragliding on the Hochkönig and in Salzburg
Freedom above the clouds
If you don’t have a head for heights, It’s best to move along quickly because this activity takes you up high. Paragliding in Salzburg is becoming increasingly popular. Levitating with a paraglider high above the air – alone or in tandem – allows you to enjoy unique views of the vast open countryside from a bird’s eye view. If you’re looking for options to go paragliding on the Hochkönig, Hotel Sonnhof in gorgeous Mühlbach is the perfect accommodation for you!
Starting in Werfenweng with mountain view
A short drive (approx. 25 minutes) brings you to the flight school Austriafly in Werfenweng, where paragliding lessons, tandem flights and various other special lessons are offered. The gondola transports you to the Bischling with direct view of Dachstein, Hochkönig and Tennengebirge. Depending on thermal winds, the net flying time lasts 15 to 30 minutes.
