Brienzer Rothorn is the perfect place to try out paragliding, you simply have to go there on a sunny day and on top of the mountain you will often find paraglider-Tandem-pilots waiting for passengers to fly with them down again.
Of course it might make sense to book such flights in advance but you simply can as well just go to the top and search for a pilot there - when you are lucky and maybe also not in the high season you can 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...
Equipment: You really can decide to fly in the last minute, when you are up there and see that the weather is perfect : The equipment is given by the pilot - they always have a large rucksack with all necessary equipments.
Directions: The tandem-pilots are waiting about halfway between the restaurant and the peak of Rothorn - you will recognize them by their equipment !
