Clear mountain air, soft wind, perfect thermal conditions, unmatched panorama. There are many reasons for gliding through the air at Kössen resort. Untouched nature and wide valleys make the Kaiserwinkl region a dream destination for paragliders. The launch site at 1500m is easily accessible by the Unterberghorn cable car and is located near Bärenhütte. Ready for take-off!
North winds rise up the northern slope of the Unterberghorn Mountain and ensure the so-called rise of the air masses, ideal conditions for paragliders. Additional sunlight produces thermal up-winds that carry you high above Unterberg.
