2)The Brienzer Rothorn is a paradise for Paragliders as well and quite often you will see paraglider-Tandem-pilots waiting for their passengers to fly with them down again...
You may book such flights some time in advance ( without knowing what the weather will be like ) or simply take the cog-wheel-trai. to the top of Rothorn and search for a pilot there. As long as you don't come in the high season, it will be easy to find a pilot there and that way you may decide on top of the mountain, if you dare to fly down with one of the pilots. The pilot on my picture was waiting 2 hours in vain before he decided to fly down alone. In fact he was not only going downwards, BUT was able to find a perfect wind to take him UP several hundred meters, before he sailed down to the valley...
