Hippach - Zillertaler High Road
The best known attraction in Hippach is the Zillertaler High Road, one of the most beautiful Alpine roads in Austria. It offers a breathtaking journey up to a height of 2020m, and a distance of 25km from Hippach to Ried.
Flying in the Zillertal began in the Seventies, taking off from the High Road or Arbiskopf. Although, back then, there weren't any paragliders, just the very first hang gliders.
Flying in Hippach
From Arbiskopf we start our Mega Flight.
The Start Site lies at 2020m and offers a height difference of 1500m to the landing site. The flight time is about 20-30 mins.
Another Take Off point can be found on Schwendberg at 1200m, where we start our Children's or Small Flight.
Transport to the take off point is either with taxi or the scheduled bus. Of course, you can also drive with your own vehicle up to the start site but please be aware of the extra cost for the road toll.
The Meeting Point, unless otherwise arranged, is in Hippach by "Sport Schiestl" or in Hollenzen by the "Bruggerstube".
The Landing Site can be found either in Hippach just under the church or in Hollenzen by the "Bruggerstube", which is the main landing site in the area.
Important: Our tandem flights from Arbiskopf and Schwendberg are operated mostly between 9.00 und 14.00, the starting conditions are not so favourable later in the day. We can fly the whole day in Mayrhofen and Zell without any problems.
