Discover the sights while flying

Tandem paragliding in Kössen is a fantastic adventure during your vacation in the Kössen holiday region. The Kaiserwinkl region and the neighboring regions of Walchsee, Schwendt and Rettenschöss await you with numerous excursion destinations and attractions. During a tandem flight you can already see numerous natural gems and sights & attractions from a bird's eye view.

Happy passenger



The Unterberg or the Unterberghorn is the beginning of our little journey. It is not without reason that this mountain is world-famous among all paragliders. The ideal conditions for beginners but also great thermals for advanced paragliding pilots make this mountain so popular in the paragliding scene.

What offers

Kössen in summer

If you are looking for adventure with a sense of closeness to nature, then Kössen is the right place for you.

The region has numerous hikes to offer, from easy paths to high alpine tours, but also attractive Nordic walking routes.

Here's a little tip from the locals: To get to know the place best, we recommend taking the Kössen village tour, which takes you to beautiful places in the area.

The Kössen region is also popular for cycling, mountain biking or e-biking. Here you will find routes with different levels of difficulty. You should always be fit and have plenty of energy, which is why you should try out all the culinary aspects of the region. It's ideal that a combination of enjoyment and activity is also offered here:

  • Kaiserweis pleasure bike tour – visiting regional dairymen, bakers, distillers, schnapps distillers, bacon and sausage producers
  • Cheese wheel round – on the trail of hay milk cheese

Have you ever bathed in the middle of a forest? No? Then you should definitely cool off in the forest swimming pool. Equipped with slides, waterfalls, water mushrooms and much more, all age groups will have fun there.

The Walchsee in the neighboring town of the same name offers a little more space for swimming. The shimmering blue-green natural lake can be reached from Kössen in just ten minutes by car and from there you can easily combine a visit to the “Schwemm” moor area. This large nature reserve is home to numerous species of dragonflies, frogs and newts.

If you want to cool down with a little adrenaline, we recommend rafting in the Tiroler Ache or canyoning in the gorges of Tyrol.

One of the absolute highlights of the region is a hot air balloon ride: hop in the basket and explore the region from above.

What offers

Kössen in winter

But even in winter it doesn't get boring in Kössen. Away from the slopes, the region has a lot to offer: snowshoe hikes, winter hikes, or a romantic horse-drawn sleigh ride in the middle of winter wonderland.

The Hochkössen ski area is particularly popular among families; here you will find the perfect ski slope for everyone with a wide range of difficulty levels.

For those who are looking for more action, there is snow tubing on the Staffenberg near Kössen - fun is guaranteed here!

What is associated with winter and Kaiserwinkel? That's easy: cross-country skiing. Whether classic or skating, everyone gets their return with a wide variety of routes! Eight different routes start in Kössen, which is known for its guaranteed snow.

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......
