ballonalps 4 - 12 February 2023

In February you get the chance to take off: During the international winter balloon weeks in the Zell am See-Kaprun region, you will glide over the winter landscape in a hot air balloon. Enjoy unique views of the mountains around the Hohe Tauern. 

Fabulous vista and balloon adventure

The balloonalps offer you the opportunity to take part in various hot-air balloon passenger rides. The cold winter temperatures in February are perfect for this: The high temperature difference between the air in the balloon and the ambient air makes winter the best season for ballooning. Longer flights are also possible then.  

Night of the Balloons

As part of the Balloonalps, a unique show with ski and snowboard acrobatics, great music and glowing balloons will take place at the valley station of cityXpress in Zell am See on Wednesday, 8 February 2023 at 8 pm.

Huge hot-air balloons wrap Zell am See in an eye-catching sea of colour: the night of the balloons. The colorful light spectacle is one of the highlights of the winter season. The ski and snowboard instructors of the region, equipped with torches, draw a chain of lights across the ski slope, the nostalgic skiers look back on the beginnings of skiing, drinks, music and fireworks round off the programme. Entry is free.
