Semaine Internationale de Ballons à Air Chaud

Top choice ballooning in Château d’Œx

For one week in the second half of January, Château-d’Œx hosts this annual festival involving around 100 hot-air balloons, ranging from the standard floater to odd creatures such as a massive Scottish bagpipe player.

If you actually want to fly up, up and away it costs Sfr390 per adult (Sfr195 for kids aged between 8 and 15 years) for about one hour.
