Achensee International Balloon Days

For one week in January, a kaleidoscope of colors takes over the sky at the International Balloon Days in the Achensee region.

The Achensee Balloon Days will take place from 13 January to 20 January 2024.

The International Balloon Days at Tirol’s largest lake are now in its seventh year. You can take a balloon ride (and go up, up, and away) during any of the once-daily mass ascensions: Imagine floating serenely along winter wonderland in a thatched basket hundreds of feet up, looking down on the snow-capped peaks of the Karwendel and Rofan Mountains. Flights typically last one hour. At the end of the trip, you will receive a certificate. The 2024 Balloon Days bring a special night of celebration and fun with a Night Glow at the car park of Hochalm Ski Lifts. 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 on the northern shore of Achensee Lake.
