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 11th to 16th March 2019.

From 11th March the colourful hot air balloons will start up every  day for passenger rides into the winter sky. The ticket price is EUR 260 per person (tours can be booked 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. Special tip for romantics: The Nightglow will take place on 12th March: Illuminated balloons outshine each other and create a spectacular view on the northern shore of Tirol’s largest lake.
