Tandem-paragliding in Kössen

Are you ready for a very special experience?

Tandem flying in Tyrol is an incredible adventure!

We fly from Unterberg in Kössen at Kaiserwinkl.

It is not without reason that Kössen and the Unterberghorn are called pioneering places in the international hang gliding and paragliding scene: every summer countless paragliding enthusiasts come here because of the good thermals for panoramic flights, cable cars and infrastructure.

Kössen is probably the most famous flying area in Europe and has developed into a Mecca for the scene over the decades.

This is what happy guests look like



Experience the beautiful landscape of the Kaiserwinkl from a bird's eye view while paragliding and take off with us. We float silently past the peaks with the help of the updrafts and enjoy the view.

We can easily reach the starting point with the Unterberghorn gondola.

Meeting point &


We meet at the valley station/ticket office of the Unterberghorn gondola with the address: Thurnbichl 47, 6345 Kössen

We then take the gondola up the mountain together (the cable car ticket is not included).

Tandem paragliding


When you arrive at the mountain, you will receive instructions and your helmet and seat belt will be put on you. After a few quick steps, we'll be gliding through the air on a tandem flight and your first panoramic flight.

Depending on the flight time, we land some time later at the landing site where we met.

Tip for tandem flying:

Top thermals on the Unterberghorn

Kössen and the Unterberg are undoubtedly one of the paragliding centers in Europe. The Unterberg also offers 3 different take-off sites depending on the wind direction and a landing site at the famous Paragliding Bar as well as a landing site at the gondola valley station.

The thermals are active early in spring and beautiful cross-country flights are often made from Unterberg. Also for longer tandem flights there are optimal conditions here.

The cable car at

Unterberghorn in Kössen

The mountain station of the gondola lift in Hochkössen is the starting point for numerous wonderful hiking and mountain tours, as well as for breathtaking paragliding flights. The idyllic mountain landscape and natural scenery alone are worth the drive up.

Once you have arrived at the mountain station, at 1,500 meters above sea level, the summit of the Unterbergerhorn offers an unforgettable panoramic view from Walchsee to Chiemsee as well as the peaks of the Hohe Tauern and the Wilder Kaiser.

The wide range of sights & attractions around the flight area will inspire you too.

Today, January 11, 2024, I had my first paragliding tandem flight from Schmittenhöhe/Zell am See into the valley. The pilot was very safety conscious and took great souvenir photos during the flight. I'm looking forward to spring so I can take a longer flight than today. So I can only recommend Falken Air. Update 1/13/24 I'm still fascinated by my flight. Actually, I was a bit afraid of it at first... but because I had already told a few people beforehand, I ended up flying. ...and it was just total freedom between heaven and earth. I think I felt like my spirit animal (Chinese) the eagle. So incredibly free and... I'm just still speechless, so beautiful....🙂🍀🙂

This was a particularly nice tandem flight with Josef. Started on the Schmittenhöhe in beautiful weather and optimal thermals. A really great experience to experience the altitude, the landscape, nature and flying. The wonderful view of Lake Zell, the snow-covered Kitzsteinhorn, the reservoirs, etc. - a uniquely beautiful experience. I can particularly recommend it. And the landing soft and delicate......
