International Tannheimer Tal Valley Balloon Festival

Tannheim, 11.01.2020 - 25.01.2020

A kaleidoscope of colours takes over the sky at Tannheimertal Valley in January 2020, with balloons ascending and floating over the mountains during the Balloon Festival, which is now in its 25th year.

Some 25 balloons will ascend and float over the beautiful mountains and valleys for two weeks in January 2020 during the 25th International Balloon Festival. Get there early to see them all lift off and glow in the morning sun. By early morning, the skies are dotted with the bright colours of the balloons as they float above the scenic Alpine valley’s winter wonderland below. Each year a variety of concessions are available and entertainment is provided. Or, find yourself in a thatched basket hundreds of feet up, looking down on the lofty peaks of the Tirolese Mountains on a Tannheimertal Valley balloon ride (daily between 11:00am and 12:00 noon).

Among the highlights of this colourful, eye-catching spectacle are the weekly Balloon Glows, which are held on Tuesday nights at 8:00pm (Jan 14, 2020 in Jungholz; Jan 21, 2020 in Grän). 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 to the sound of classical music.
