One of the biggest ‘testivals’ of the world, the Super Paragliding Testival, is now in its ninth year. About 50 manufacturers of paragliders, harnesses and instruments, coming from around the globe will show off their products at this year’s Super Testival in Kössen. Take the cable car up, fly down, swap gliders, do it again. Far more than 3,000 pilots are expected to participate in what is rated one of the largest air sports spectacles in the world.
Kössen Unterberg is situated in a box canyon, making it a perfect spot for paragliding. An updraft of air created by the mountain’s walls keeps paragliders in the air longer. Often the site for paragliding competitions, Kössen’s spectacular mountains and charming downtown look even better from a bird’s eye view. Down the line, it will all be about party, live acts and a fashion show to the entertainment of all.
