Achensee International Balloon Days

Achenkirch, 02.03.2020 - 08.03.2020

For one week in March 2020, a kaleidoscope of colours takes over the sky at the International Balloon Days at area. Find yourself in a thatched basket hundreds of feet up, looking down on Achensee Lake on a balloon ride.

The International Balloon Days at Tirol’s largest lake are now in its fifth year. You can take a balloon ride (and go up, up and away) during any of the once daily mass ascensions: Imagine floating serenely along winter wonderland in a thatched basket hundreds of feet up, looking down on the snow-capped peaks of the Karwendel and Rofan Mountains. Flights typically last one hour. At the end of the trip, you will receive a certificate. The 2020 Balloon Days bring a special night of celebration and fun with a Night Glow on March 3 at 8:00pm. The balloons stay fully inflated but tethered to the ground so spectators can get up-close views. Imagine rows upon rows of bulbous luminaries, dozens of feet tall, lit up from the glow of flames on the northern shore of Achensee Lake. A special kids’ afternoon is scheduled for March 7, 2020, starting at 2:00pm.
