Gosau turns on the "light bulbs"
When the balloonists meet in the Gosau Valley in mid-January for the traditional Alpentrophy, the traditional "Gosau Balloon Week", the "Night of the Balloons" is an absolute "Place to be". Because at dusk, during the so-called "balloon glow", the balloons are started up, ready for use and by operating the burner filled with hot air and inflated. The balloon's envelope is illuminated from inside by the flame of the burner, so that the balloon begins to "glow", also called "Night Glowing" by many balloon lovers. The result is a lighting effect that illuminates the surroundings, and so the mighty "sky-stormers" resemble giant light bulbs.
A feast for the senses!
When the colourful "lightbulbs" are used as musical instruments in the style of a water organ, it is the visitors who get warm hearts, despite the frosty temperatures in the Gosau Valley. However, not only the coloured sky conquerors, but also the numerous tasty "warm makers" and culinary delights from the kitchen of the Salzkammergut. A true feast for the eyes and palate, which is rounded off by a colourful fireworks display. An absolute feast for the senses!
"Fly over" deep snow covered woods and fields, rivers and lakes and enjoy the soothing view of the wintry romantic Salzkammergut. Book your dream winter now during the Balloon Week on your holiday in Gosau and the Gosau Valley.
