In Gosau 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 day.

Highlight of the event is the display of hot air balloons by night. This memorable occasion will take place in this week. 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.
