On the Unterberghorn the flying season is throughout the whole year. With a height of 1774m, the mountain is on of the largest in the Kitzbühel district.
The launchsite, at 1500m, is easily accessable by the Unterberghorn gondola. The start area is located only a 3 minute walk away from the top station and is situated right next to the Bärenhütte. From here the area boasts a fantastic landscape of the Tyrolean Alps and neighbouring Bavaria as well as a beautiful view of the Kaiserwinkl.
