Tegernsee Valley Montgolfiade - Hot Air Balloon Festival

All eyes in the Tegernsee turn to the sky this January for the annual hot air balloon festival! Known as Tegernsee Valley Montgolfiade, this festival sees approximately 20 hot air balloons of various shapes and colour fill the sky, alongside balloon exhibitions, stage shows and open-air concerts.

Hot air balloon rides over the Tegernsee Valley

The 22nd edition of the hot air balloon festival is set to run from January 30 - February 6. Located by the promenade of Bad Wiessee, the official ceremonial opening with a balloon-christening by IKH Duchess Elisabeth in Bavaria will take place on the first day. Afterwards, 20 hot air balloons of different sizes will be available for daily passenger rides, rising up to lofty heights and offering stunning views of the valley.

Along with the hot air balloon rides, there's typically a full entertainment programme on offer, though this year is likely to be an exception due to coronavirus safety measures. Most years, visitors can explore the culinary hut village, which offers a number of regional specialities and traditional dishes. Or they can warm themselves up with a hot drink or a German beer at the snow bar with lakeside views.

Those afraid of heights can also explore the hot air balloon exhibition on the ground. Various model balloons of different colours will be displayed. In the evenings there will also be laser shows and light plays with light installations.

In addition, there is also a stage programme of live music and a varied children’s programme at the Tegernsee mascot meeting hut, perfect for the entire family. For example, you can take a guided tour of the natural dairy Tegernsee Land or enjoy a sociable evening with friends on a romantic horse-drawn carriage ride to an Alpine pasture.
