The main takeoff is the Unternberg (1380m) for NW and additionally the Hochfelln (1665m) for E, both takeoffs are reachable by cable car. In this area of the northern Alps, the local north wind, the "Bayrischer Wind", sets in around noon and ensures reliable launch conditions. The terrain is thermally very good in late spring, in this time skilled pilots fly more than 200km from the Unternberg.
