Paragliding on the Uetliberg
Paragliding only a half hour from the city center. It’s possible to paraglide at the Uetliberg when there is a low to moderate breeze (no wind). Since the launch area is very small and surrounded by trees, a skillful backwards starting technique is recommended. After starting, an active gliding style is best. The region around Uetliberg is a beautiful area for paragliding in front of Zurich’s gates and sometimes even behind them. The starting and landing area in Zurich-Leimbach is managed together with flight training schools and associations in coordination with property owners.
