Paragliding in Hochsteiermark

The Präbichl: well-known El Dorado for paragliders

Paragleitschirm am Himmel

The Präbichl in Styria - once an insider tip – is today a well-known El Dorado for Paraglider far beyond the region, with an overwhelming mountain panorama in summer and winter.

The Polster is the housemountain of the local soaringclub of Präbichl. The best thermal entrance is found on the so called Niederpolster, as connections offer themselves in different directions the Pfaffenstein (NW), the Rössl (SW) and the Leobner Mauer (O).
East of the Polster are mostly wooded mountains, to the west more rugged high-alpine terrain. Accordingly, there are also the thermals from gentle to crisp.

A special adventure is the Hausstrecke, a top landing at Reichensteinhütte (2166). It is an easy task with west wind and light thermals conditions.

Not far from the landing site is the bathing pond with a buffet, at which also the diving school Präbichl settled down. A welcome cooling off after a long hot flight.

Tip tandem flying

A spectacular Tandem flight can be booked with Soaringclub Präbichl.
