The Beautiful Balloon Festival at Sattel Hochstuckli Switzerland
Balloon Fiesta Sattel Hochstuckli 27th February 2022
This year’s Chateau d’Oex Balloon Festival in Switzerland didn’t take place because of Covid. However the Sattel-Hochstuckli Balloon Festival is planned to take place on Sunday 27th February. All the action will begin at around 10.30am with the balloons setting off within the following hour or so dependant on conditions.
14 hot-air balloons are planned to take off simultaneously into the sky. The event which takes place at Herrenboden in Sattel-Hochstückli has been taking place for many years, and the 2022 edition will be the 25th festival. The event is of course, very much weather dependent and as such, if the wind is too strong or the weather inclement, decisions may be made at short notice.
The festival is a very popular and colourful event against the backdrop of the snow-covered mountains. The balloon festival in Sattel-Hochstuckli is certainly one of the most beautiful winter events in the Mythen region of Switzerland and definitely worth attending if you get the chance. Admittance is free.
Please note that there is not a lot of parking at the venue so it is recommended to arrive early and if possible, to travel by public transport.
TOP TIP: Wrap up warmly as there is lots of waiting as you watch and stand around. Make sure your feet are well dressed too in warm, non slip boots!
