Air sportsmen and golden eagle protection
Current no-fly zones for paragliders
— unchanged since 22.05.2023 —
The breeding season 2023 is in full swing and we ask again all air sportsmen for help in protecting our golden eagles!
Restricted zone in the release area of our bearded vultures (BG) in the throat pit
In the period from March 1 until the departure of the young eagles, those areas are marked green in the overview graphic where paragliders and hang gliders find good thermal areas and can use them - from the eagle's point of view - without any problems.
In the same period, the sensitive breeding areas (= eyrie areas) of our rare golden eagles are marked in red, where they do not want to be disturbed during their breeding business. To avoid disturbance, pilots should fly around these areas at a distance of at least 500 meters.
The map will be updated as soon as possible. We ask you to pass on the information to the other pilots! Thank you very much!
On behalf of our Golden Eagles we thank you for the good cooperation and consideration in the season 2022 and hope for the same support and consideration in 2023!
As part of a long-term monitoring project of the Berchtesgaden National Park Administration, the population dynamics of the golden eagle are documented in the Chiemgau, Berchtesgaden and immediately adjacent Salzburg Alps. A total of 15 territorial pairs are monitored over an area of approx. 1,500 km². Two further territories are currently not occupied. In the National Park itself there are currently 5 golden eagle territories on an area of 210 km².
The goal of the project is on the one hand the preservation of a vital golden eagle subpopulation as well as the implementation of concrete measures for the protection of this rare bird of prey in Bavaria.

What you should consider during your stay in the national park
In a national park, the protection of nature is the primary goal. In order to achieve this goal, we need your help and ask you not to do the following in the national park:
- Throw away garbage
- Pick endangered plants
- Let dog run free without leash in national park
- Shorten distances
- Disturb animals in your habitat
- bivouacking or camping in the countryside
- Listening to loud music or lighting a free fire
- endanger the hikers as a cyclist
- use swimming aids of any kind to navigate the lakes in the national park
- Let drones fly in the national park or fly over it
Thank you for your understanding!
