Gloriously colorful winter show

Highlight of the event is the display of hot air balloons by night. This memorable occasion will take place on 17th January 2018. A stunning visual treat! Spectators flock to the Hornspitz/Gosau Mittertal and see how enormous flames create the hot air needed to inflate these huge, brightly coloured balloons.

Watching the brightly illuminated giants lift off into the skies in a wonderfully orchestrated sequence is an experience you will never forget! A spectacular fire works display is the grand finale of this momentous occasion. If you have ever wanted to enjoy a bird's eye view of the Salzkammergut yourself, now is your best chance!

Food Trucks & Fashion Show

This time, the starting signal for the "Night of Balloons" will be given already at noon. This is due to a great warm-up program for all the enthusiastic visitors from 12:00. You will literally have tasty things to get your hands on! With the "Food Trucks in the Snow" a delicious scent will waft over the Gosau Valley from the winter menu, which will include various sausage and meat delights such as delicious Pulled Pork, hearty pastrami and iconic Cheeseburgers, but also the “Gosauer Genusskorb” will warm your cold palate.

For those who prefer fashion on this adventure day, they can look forward to an unusual fashion show starting at 15:00 with live music. After the big balloon show from about 18:00 the visitors can look forward to a great ski show and a grandiose fireworks display. We hope you have fun!
