Serenity and poetry

Château-d’Oex, the alpine capital for hot air ballooning, attracts pilots from all over the world. They relish flying in this valley with its exceptional microclimate, which offers superb views over the Alps and Pre-Alps.

A unique experience in the Swiss Alps!

Balloons take off from Château-d’Oex all year round, weather permitting. After only a few minutes flying the view is already an impressive 360° panorama. Most days you can admire the whole Alpine landscape from Mont-Blanc to the Eiger, taking in the Grand-Combin, the Matterhorn, and the Jura; not forgetting the regions around Lake Geneva and the canton of Fribourg. An outing to enjoy on one’s own, with family, among friends, or in a group.


Take off from Château-d’Oex in the morning. After landing and putting away the balloon we share a drink and present you with your flight certificate. In summer we can organise flights on the Swiss Plateau in the late afternoon. We can also organise group flights with one or more balloons.
