Floating through the air

Aerial sports in Tölzer Land

Who hasn’t felt the desire to experience the feeling of absolute freedom while seeing the world from above.

Gently rising into the air and experiencing a wondrous alpine panorama – a balloon ride makes it possible. “Above the clouds”, your head buzzes and you feel the boundless freedom of the heavens. The pilot carried by the wind has little say about the destination. Since the balloon travels with the wind, it appears to be wind still up in the air. The airborne adventure lasts around 2 hours before the balloon goes in for a landing. This is followed by the so-called baptism of fire for first-time balloonists.
