    SAFE FLYING WEATHER

    We only fly in safe flying weather. "Pedestrian weather" can be very different from good flying weather.

  • WEATHER

  • FLIGHT WEATHER

    We only fly in safe flying weather. This can differ significantly from "pedestrian weather". The vogelfrei team uses special aviation weather forecasts (e.g. high-altitude winds), current measurement data and many years of experience in aviation meteorology to plan the weather on a daily basis.

    WEATHER CONFIRMATION The DAY BEFORE

    On the day before the planned tandem flight (by 6 pm at the latest), depending on the flying weather, we will confirm your appointment by phone, WhatsApp or SMS or, if necessary, by e-mail. canceled/postponed. Please be reachable at your mobile number.

    WEATHER ON THE DAY OF THE FLIGHT

    On the day of the flight, your pilot will decide whether to carry out your tandem flight. We ask for your understanding that in rare cases there may be cancellations on site for safety reasons. Cancellations by vogelfrei will not incur any costs.

  • OPENING HOURS

  • FLYING TIMES

    We fly daily in good weather, all year round also on Sundays and public holidays. Exceptions are the maintenance periods of the mountain railroads from the beginning of November to mid-December. You can find the latest information on our contact page.

    OFFICE/SHOP OPENING HOURS

  • CABLE CAR

  • Cable car ticket

    The cable car ticket is not included in the flight price, except for premium flights. To ensure that everything runs smoothly, your pilot will organize your ticket purchase with you. If you have the "cable car included" offer from your accommodation, please bring this ticket with you.

    ACCOMPANYING PERSONS

    We generally recommend that spectators watch the flight from the landing site. If you want to experience the take-off, you should expect longer waiting times at the cable car, which only the pilot and his passenger can avoid. This means that accompanying persons must queue earlier at the Nebelhornbahn (up to 1 hour in high season).

  • EXACT PROCESS

  • SUPPLIER

  • WATCH TANDEM FLIGHT

    We recommend that spectators wait at the landing site. There they can follow a large part of the tandem flight and are up close and personal with your landing. Tip: Bring binoculars with you or try out our free LEICA binoculars. Important: If you want to experience the take-off at the Nebelhorn flying area, you should expect waiting times at the cable car, depending on the season and time of day, and therefore drive up to the launch site a little earlier. Watching paragliders take off and land on site is usually very tight on time.

    RECOGNIZE

    So that your friends and family can easily recognize you in the air, you will find an overview of all the pilots' paraglider designs here.

  • NATURAL SPORT

  • FLIGHT DURATION

    The flight duration stated for our tandem flights is realistic and fair. Paragliding is a natural sport and may therefore vary in rare cases. Desired action maneuvers also shorten the flight time.

    Waiting times

    We plan enough time for each tandem flight. Nevertheless, there may be delays (weather, cable car). If your pilot is delayed (more than 15 minutes), you will be informed by telephone or text message. So please have your cell phone ready to receive.

    CANCEL AT SHORT NOTICE

    On the day of the flight, your pilot will decide whether to carry out your tandem flight. The pilot can also cancel the flight immediately before take-off for safety reasons if the weather changes quickly, even if this is unconvinient for you. We have been flying accident-free for many years according to this principle. We only charge the flight price if your tandem flight has taken place. You are responsible for the costs of travel and transportation.
