Thanks, Chateau. I danced with GE for about 15 minutes but never got anything out of it. I found a similar photo viewpoint from the Rauschberg startsite-mountain. (original) (data here)

This place seems like a good location posibility for the "torte" throwing and it is in Ruhpolding too.

I thought Austria too!


But I am geographically challenged today, and am confused again--

Where are we again??  :lol: :lol: :lol:

Is this Rox's Chiemsee, in Germany, just west of Salzburg??

Or is Slowhatch's Hochfelln massif somewhere else entirely? ???

I need the big picture map, :groan:

Well, it is really the same place, Peach. The Hochfelln Massif is just a really really big rock just south of the Chiemsee, west of Salzburg near the town of Ruhpolding, Germany. Do a GE on Ruhpolding, Germany and then zoom out. I cannot do screen caps on this computer or I would do the GE for you.

The entertainment park in Ruhpolding, says it is a 30 minute drive from Salzburg.

Thanks that helps!

From apskips reference:

Ruhpolding
Journey via Traunstein, Siegsdorf and Eisenärzt. Stroll through the well-known mountain location and the spa gardens. Coffee break in the spa casino with musical entertainment. For those interested there is an opportunity for a mountain cable car excursion to the Rauschberg. A special attraction is the newly laid-out alpine educational trail on top of the Rauschberg. This is a wide, flat and spaciously laid-out trail on which older participants can walk without difficulty and strain. It leads to the most beautiful viewpoints and past several cabins in which interesting insights about the alpine flora and the geological development of the Rauschberg massif are provided. Return journey along the German Alpine Road toward Inzell, the famous venue for winter sport activities. Return via Siegsdorf, Traunstein and Altötting.

Here is a site on paragliding take off points from the Rauschberg massif:

In my surfing today I read somewhere (can't find it again) that the tents in Bavaria are traditionally blue and white striped like their flag (there was a red and white striped Austrian tent in another photo). Dunno if this means the beer tent really was in Germany, or whether WRP have just hired some of their gear from Germany. :duno:

These are Bootshäuser am Königssee.  I actually visited nearby Berchtesgaden in '95.

Bravo, bravo!!!!!!

Thats a great find, Chateau....simply great. I think I looked at the coastline of every lake along that autobahn from Interlaken to Salzburg. Last night I was scanning pictures around the Eagle's Nest/Obersalzburg area, but had not yet got to the Konigssee yet....wow....that is terrific.

That really cements Germany as the 9th country.

I think it is instructive to look at the sites for activities for the "Salzburg leg". We have now identified places in Germany not more than 25 miles from Salzburg as where they are happening. I attribute this to World Race Productions running a stealth campaign to minimize the probability of being sighted. In Salzburg itself there are many international (including U.S.) tourists, so going to very small towns in Bavaria should have and did make it difficult for us to figure out where things are.

Ruhpolding, Bavaria, Germany
Schönau am Königsee (or King's Lake), Bavaria, Germany

And not that we need it now after Slowhatch's and Chateau's fine work, but the chute is indeed from the oase company, who also confirmed the location just now:

Quote
yes, its correct . This is our glider , flewn in November for a TV-event  at rauschberg, ruhpolding /bavaria .
 
with best regards
 
peter geg
 
OASE Flugschule
 
oase-paragliding . de


So we can properly credit Uncle Bill for bringing us to the OASE company.

Too slow!  :funny: OASE beat me to it. Anyway, here are some photos of the takeoff and landing areas (apparently, the hang-gliders and paragliders start at different places). And here's a reverse angle up to the top of Rauschberg. I can't find any coordinates for the landing zone, but it's somewhere in Ruhpolding, which makes for an easy drive on the 305 to Konigssee.
