Experience the adventure of paragliding with TANDEMWELT!
Start now with a tandem master for an unforgettable paragliding flight on the Wasserkuppe (Rhön). Depending on the wind direction there are different take-off places available. TANDEMWELT offers paragliding tandem flights in the Rhön all year round, provided the conditions are suitable.
The passenger must be physically healthy and may not weigh more than 95 kg. If you have any questions about the requirements, please contact us in advance. For air sports, the zero-alcohol-level limit applies.
As a weather-dependent outdoor sport, appointments can only be made at short notice (approx. 1-3 days in advance). In order to facilitate the organisation, appointments are made online via the website tandemwelt.de. There you can also order gift vouchers.
The passenger should wear sturdy, ankle-supporting footwear, for example hiking boots. Clothing should be chosen according to the season – similar to hiking. We recommend long trousers, a T-shirt, fleece or sweater, and a windbreaker, in winter a ski suit. The pilot provides the passenger with a flight helmet.
The exact meeting point where the passenger is expected at the agreed time will be communicated to the passenger when the appointment is made. Depending on the wind direction, take-offs will be at different starting points.
Paragliding is considered the safest aerodynamic flying at all. So far there have been no serious paragliding accidents (wheelchair users or fatalities) on the Wasserkuppe.
The voucher includes a flight from the starting to the landing place. The flight duration depends on various factors (wind, weather, passenger weight…) and is between 5 and 15 minutes.
…or just take off yourself!
If you don’t want to just fly with us, but take off by yourself, just book a weekend trial course at Papillon Paragliding, Germany’s most popular flying school (according to licenses issued since 2000), directly on the Wasserkuppe. Previous experience is not required. Practically everyone who is healthy and of average fitness (such as for cycling) can learn or try paragliding themselves.
