This hot air balloon festival is one of the best in europe. Well organised. Great to be so close to the balloons and watch them fly morning and night weather permitting.

I surprised my wife with two tickets for the hot air balloon ride (€199 pp) for the Saturday evening ride. We arrived at 2:30 to pick up our tickets, but could have probably waited until 3:30-3:45pm as there's not much to do other than walk around the mini fair (Kids 10 and under rides, ice cream, small Shops, etc.). After you pick up your ticket, you have to meet at 4:30-4:45pm under the black tent on the field. The host will then start calling out for groups of 2, 3, 4, 5, etc.. until everyone is called. We lucked out and were right at the front of line so we managed to get picked first. You have to yell "we're 3!!" otherwise people will steal your spot. Luckily, as the first couple in our own balloon, our balloon was the third balloon off the ground. This is a very exciting Moment if you have never experienced it. Feeling the heat from the fire, the power of the wind, and the sheer lift you get.. amazing! I will not describe the feeling of being in a hot air balloon, but i can say that it was something you will never forget! After landing, you may be required to help the balloon "driver" to pack up, which takes about 15-20 minutes. Then the drive back is about 30 mins. Flight time is about 1 hour but we managed about 1:20 because we had a hard time finding a landing strip. Nonetheless, our landing was a perfect 10! Lastly, at night they do a firework Show and a hot air balloon light show! Parking is €5 but you can park in the city for free and just walk in.…
