Up, Up and Away!

Each year, Kirchberg in Tirol plays host to the International Libro Balloon Cup. This town, most noted for winter sports, is located in the western state of Tyrol’s Brixen Valley skiing region, Kitzb√ºhel. More than 30 teams from other European countries (Switzerland, Germany, the United Kingdom to name a few) flock to Austria to compete in this event.

This festival is fun for the whole family. Program highlights include public rides, paragliding championships and a children’s festival. On the final day is the competition of teams and that evening after sundown the most popular event at the Balloon Cup is held: Night Glow, a night flight. The breathtaking spectacle of all the hot air balloons illuminated in the night sky by the gas burners which keep them afloat is the perfect way to end the festival.

Don’t miss your chance to see the beauty of the Kitzbühel Alps from a bird’s eye view. This year, the International Balloon cup will be held from September 16th through the 24th. Book a cheap flight to Austria today to join the fun.
