Consider going skiing if you get the chance. I guess Austria and Switzerland is a more alluring destination for this, but it's definitely possible in Berchtesgaden and well worth the trouble. Although the snow has been scarce this season they are doing all they can to get the slopes operational. By the way, the lack of snow is the same all over the Alps.
There is a very good and also really scenic system of hiking-paths around the cablecar of Jennerbahn.
Jennerbahn has 3 stations :
Talstation - down in the valley, next to the large parking
Mittelstation - in a hight of 1200 meters
Bergstation - in a hight of 1800 meters
Take a look at my map - you may get this map free of charge at the Jennerbahn :

Paragliding from Jenner is not really easy and it is advisable NOT to fly there at all, when you are still a beginner or un-experienced paraglider. In 2005 various accidents did happen, so it would be very important to
contact the local paragliding-club before you plan a flight from Jenner (for the GERMAN-Version click on my link below !)
At the beginning of the Jennerbahn-cablecar you may see a map with the ONLY advisable places to start and to land and then you should also know that during days of high thermic the landing might be rather turbulent there.
Equipment: Bring your own equipment, packed equipment may have a length of not more than 4 meters to be transported by the Jenner-cablecar. You need your own insurance for the transport AND you have to register in a flight-book at the counter of the cablecar !!
NO charges for take off or landing, pilots get a small reduction for their meals and drinks at the restaurant on top of Jenner.
