Filzmoos Balloon Week takes place each January in Filzmoos, Austria. This pretty Austrian village nestles in the “ski amadé” region of Salzburgerland.
Every January in Filzmoos, Austria a multitude of brightly colored hot-air balloons lift gently into the skies against a snowy backdrop of majestic mountains.
The forty-third Dopgas Balloon Trophy takes place on 22 January 2022. Filzmoos Night of the Balloons starts at 6pm. The hot air balloons launch from Hammerweise.
Every year around 30 hot air ballooning teams come to Filzmoos from all over the world to take part in the challenge.
A completely unique and magical experience awaited us. Colorful stalls sold iced gingerbread, small chocolate covered cakes and Lebkuchen biscuits.
Hot air balloons at night are quite magical as they glow against the night sky. The Filzmoos Balloon Festival is one of the best things to do in Salzburg in winter.
In the blackness of the field random balloons would suddenly light up like light giant lightbulbs as blasts of flaming gas fired into them.
