You take off directly from the mountain, take a run and glide back into the valley through the air. The summit of the Hohe Salve is is a particularly popular starting point for this. Not only the good thermal conditions draw paraglider pilots to the 1,829 m high mountain. The cable car, which goes way up to the summit, and the large take-off area are further essential advantages.
When paragliding you "glide" through the air at speeds of around 35 km/h. This leaves enough time to look at the surroundings from up above.
