Thanks to fantastic thermal conditions Ötscher is one of the best spots for paragliders. Enjoy the unbeatable panorama. You will never forget this adventure!
In summer the landing area at Ötscherwiese is full of colourful paragliders. Once up in the air you will be absolutely thrilled by the fantastic view of Hochkar, Gemeindealpe and all the surrounding lakes such as Lunzer See and Erlaufsee Lakes.
“Walk and Fly” offers several options. Are you an experienced mountaineer and an early bird? Choose the route via Rauher Kamm. Duration of the hike is approx. three to four hours. The launch site is below the summit cross.
The main launch site for paragliders is situated at Hüttenkogel. You can easily get there with the chair lift. It only takes 10 minutes from the mountain station to the launch site.
You may choose a mix of a small hike and some fun on the mountain. Take the standard route from Ötscherschutzhaus to the summit. Walking distance is about one hour, the ideal warm-up for your flight!
The best period of the year for paragliding is from May to August.
Safety first is the most important rule when paragliding. If the north-west wind is too strong paragliding can be hazardous. Always be accompanied by an experienced pilot! Make sure you find a large landing area during peak-hours.
