While the "Grasberge" Hartkaiser Brandstadl, Hohe Salve and Astberg ideally inviting for comfortable family hiking the rugged rock of the Kaisergebirge demands all from mountain climbers and climbers.

Farmers and hunters, who have lived for generations in the area near the Wilder Kaiser, have come only to the level of the Alpine pastures. Because it was rumoured, ghosts and witches, and even the devil lived at the top of the rock. This fear of the people was reflected in the name of the summit of the "Kaiser" again. There is the Totenkirchl, the Teufelskanzel and the Teufelswurzgarten. People avoided the rocks such as these rocks avoided holy water.
That changed abruptly as nearly a century ago the climbers came and saw those names just as an Alpine challenge. Everyone wanted to conquer primarily the "Kaiser", Hermann Buhl, the hero of the Himalayas or Hans Dülfer after which many classical tours are named in the Wilder Kaiser.

This air sport has a high fascination, and some pilots even speak of a risk of "addiction". Paragliding is the simplest way to see the world from a bird's eye view.
This is true for both trained pilots and for an accompanied passenger in a tandem umbrella, both enjoying the proximity to nature, without "brass and glass", to feel the wind in one's face, to be carried into the heights by the power of nature without a sound,  and that with a few steps starting at the gentle start slope.
In the village there are two excellent paragliding schools which you can also contact directly:
