Every winter, up to twelve hot-air balloons take off simultaneously from the Herrenboden and soar into the air.
For more than 20 years now, various balloon teams from all over German-speaking Switzerland have been meeting at Herrenboden in the Sattel-Hochstuckli ski area for the Stuckli Balloon Fiesta. This unique spectacle takes place on a Sunday at the beginning of each year. As the event is dependent on the wind and weather, decisions are made at short notice. If the event cannot be held due to weather conditions, it will take place on one of the two rescheduled dates.
The colourful mass launch amidst the snow-covered landscape is a winter experience of a special kind. It is not without reason that the balloon fiesta in Sattel-Hochstuckli is one of the most beautiful winter events in the Mythen adventure region.
The Balloon Fiesta on Sunday, 25 February 2024 has unfortunately been cancelled due to the weather conditions.
Up-to-date information about the event will be decided on the Friday before the event. The information can be found at www.sattel-hochstuckli.ch.
Allow enough time for the journey by train and a short hike.
