Kulm is a ski flying hill located in Tauplitz/Bad Mitterndorf, Styria, Austria.[1] Opened on 8 March 1950, the hill is one of only five of its type in the world, allowing for jumps of more than 240 metres. The current hill record of 244 m was set by Peter Prevc during the 2016 Ski Flying World Championships. The women's world record of 200 m was set by Daniela Iraschko-Stolz in 2003, who remains the only woman in history to have jumped to 200 m. Furthermore, the men's world record has been set three times at Kulm.

The venue has hosted the Ski Flying World Championships five times, in 1975, 1986, 1996, 2006, and 2016. For the World Cup event in 2015, the hill was completely renovated to a K-point of 200 m and a hill size of 225 m, making much longer jumps possible.
