In the heart of the Vaudois Alps, Château-d’Oex offers almost perfect climate for hot air ballooning – earning the title of ballooning capital.
During the visit, you can view hundreds of amazing colors and shapes when hot air balloons are in the air. If the weather conditions allow you, it is certainly a unique experience not to be missed.
The best view of the hot air balloons and the surrounding area is definitely from the hot air balloon itself, however, this is a bit expensive adventure (costs around 400 CHF). The second best place is to climb up to the church of Château-d’Oex as well.
The International Balloon Festival of Château-d’Oex gathers regularly over 10.000 visitors from many countries. All of them come from all over the world to see dozens of ballons of all shapes and colors.
The Night Glow happens during the night, of course, and it is a show of both lights and sound. It is a breathtaking experience for spectators and it is definitely a highlight of the festival.
