Float into
the Valley


With exclusive view to Hallstatt

The Krippenstein rises impressively up above Salzkammergut and doesn’t just offer hikers and climbers the perfect view. From the summit of the Krippenstein down to the lake Hallstättersee the most spectacular views open up for paragliders - and the most challenging glide sections.

Around the Dachstein glacier there are plenty of flying and flight facilities for paragliding pilots, the safety training centre at Sky Club Austria provides the ideal training conditions for pilots of all abilities and the incredible scenery of the Dachstein Krippenstein in the Salzkammergut.

The Krippenstein is an exclusive terrain for Sky Club Austria Flying School. Course participants have priority at the starting point, an undisturbed exercise airspace above the water and an own landing field at the lake.

There is scarcely any more ideal place for flights to carry out safety training courses:  The starting altitude for exercises above the lake is more than 1000 m, lake Hallstättersee is protected from the wind thanks to its location in the basin and the starting and landing field at Krippenstein/Hallstättersee are spacious and well maintained.
