Take off from Schmittenhöhe
The area around Schmittenhöhe. one of two mountains above the TAUERN SPA, is known to offer some of the best flying in Austria. There are two take-off spots at 1900 metres (E & S) and 2000 metres (SW, W, NW, E, SE) above sea level. These can be reached quickly and easily using the TrassXpress or Schmittenhöhe Bahn lift. Take a little time to enjoy the view, which stretches across the Alps and includes the glistening Zeller See lake. On a clear day you can see the Kitzsteinhorn with its mighty glacier as well as the Großglockner, Austria's highest mountain. Landings are not allowed inside the Hohe Tauern Nature Park, but there are several peaks in the region where paragliders can touch down at the summit.
