markbachjoch the hotspot for paragliders


The sky above Niederau is regularly littered with dozens of paragliders.
For paragliding in Tiyrol, the Wildschönau is one of the hotspots.

The flying and wind conditions for air sports are particularly suitable here, as the high valley is well shielded from strong winds.

The take-off point for paragliders in the Wildschönau is next to the mountain station of the Markbachjoch cable car, which brings the flight enthusiasts to the top from mid-May to October. The paragliding mountain has an altitude of 1500 metres. The ideal place for spectators is next to the markbachjoch Alm Hut. The landing site is close to the centre of Niederau in the valley at 828 metres.
