Paragliding : Stuttgart & surroundings
As I live in Stuttgart, I try to find some places here where I can
train groundhandling or do shorter soaring flights.
The map below is only thought to serve as a little help for myself to organize things. Maybe you find it useful if you also live nearby.
The little arrows indicate the ideal wind.
BTW: If you live near Stuttgart and are interested in training together or sharing a ride to the Alps, please send me a mail !
Leonberg : Schumesberg : Groundhandling
Small area, many Trees around Wind: SW (arrow on map is not correct!) Official?: ? Access: See Map below Photos:
Mauren : Schumesberg : Groundhandling
Mauren is a tiny town (5 houses) south of Boeblingen. It is easily accessible over the Autobahn A81.
Also great in summer: The Biergarten (open-air restaurant) in Mauren is a local tip: great atmosphere and food
Wind: Ideal from NNW Official?: I don't know if this is an official place to train paragliding, but I've seen paragliders (school) there from time to time.
The place seems to be privately owned, but I have no idea who to ask.
Access: A81 south, Exit Ehningen, cont. to Mauren. Then see Map below Photos:
