Hill site for paragliders and hanggliders
Noon is approved for hang gliders and paragliders and is thermally interesting in the spring. In the evening in calm soaring conditions a classy mountain. Beautiful view to the lowlands and south to the Allgäu High Alps. Ascent by chairlift from Immenstadt. Main takeoff is the NE takeoff (alpine meadow about 70 m below the terrace). In addition to the NE launch site, there is a south, northwest and the terrace launch site. Towards the west, there is a winter fence for red deer. This may not be overflown. In addition, a game feeding area is in operation on the south side in winter, which may not be overflown between December and April. The main landing area for paragliders and hang gliders is located on the plateau between Ettensberg and Altmummen. The landing site can also become turbulent in strong winds.
Landing on the meadows directly at the valley station of the Mittagbahn is prohibited. Residents file a complaint with the police.
Attention: No parking at the Tannenhof!
