Week of the balloons in Gosau from 15th to 21st January 2017
From 15th to 21st January 2017, the Gosautal valley once again becomes the destination for several balloonists. At the International Alpine Trophy, between 30 and 40 teams of balloonists from all over Europe will compete for the best position. Also for the spectators it will be a spectacle when the sky over Gosau will be decorated with balloons for one week.
The balloons will start daily between 9 am and 4 pm near the Hornspitz valley station. Here you will also have the possibility to ride as a passenger in one of the balloons and admire the snow-covered Salzkammergut region from up above.
The highlight of the week will take place on 18th January with the Hot Air Balloon Night. Brightly illuminated, the huge orbs will sway in front of the nightly mountain silhouette. Wonderful light choreographies will let the balloons become a feast for the spectators’ marvelling eyes. Finally, the big sound fireworks will complete the Hot Air Balloon Night in Gosau, just as every year.
