Paragliding in the Bregenz Forest

Paragliding on summer holiday in the Bregenz Forest, Austria

High-altitudes in the flying paradise of the Bregenz Forest

Vorarlberg is a Mecca for paragliders. The flight area in the Bregenz Forest: Niedere bei Bezau-Andelsbuch and Diedamskopf bei Au-Schoppernau are known for their laminar ridge lifts and good thermals.

Flight premises

The training hill and the high-altitude areas in Andelsbuch, Bezau and on Diedamskopf offer countless options as well as starting points in nearly every direction and a beautiful view of the Bregenz Forest, its mountains and the Lake Constance region.

The special feature is that multiple flight areas can be offered within 10 km in every direction. Paragliders float into the valley like colourful butterflies on nice days. The thermals in Niedere - especially in the summer - are friendly; the flight area numbers amongst the three best in all of Europe.
