From 13th to 21st January 2018 people will look up to the skies for a very different reason 30 to 40 brightly coloured hot air balloons will take to the skies, creating a magnificent display against a backdrop of snow laden trees and stunning mountain scenery. Teams will be competing for the annual International Alpine Trophy between 9 and 16.00 hrs each day.
"Hot Air Balloon Night"
Highlight of the event is the display of hot air balloons by night. This memorable occasion will take place on 17th January 2018 at 18:30 hrs. A stunning visual treat! Spectators flock to the Vital-Hotel in Gosau 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!
For the balloon glow, the "men of the skies" and guests from all over the world meet for a varied supporting program with culinary specialties, live music and a colourful fireworks display. The place to be!
