Ballooning Days at Lake Achensee

A journey through the winter sky: Climb on board, take off, enjoy the freedom while floating above ground. Anyone who wants to experience the special feeling of drifting in lofty heights over the snow-covered landscape around Lake Achensee should save the date for the International Ballooning Days Achensee from 1 to 7 March 2021.

From 1 March the colourful hot air balloons will start every day for passenger rides into the winter sky. The ticket price is EUR 265 per person (tours can be booked online or at the Achensee Tourist Office) and includes setting up and deflating the envelope, the balloon ride and transport back to the starting point as well as the traditional certificate presentation and reception.
