From January 22 to 30, 2022, the small town of Château-d’Oex in the Canton of Vaud will be transformed into the hot-air balloon capital of Switzerland, attracting balloonists and hot air balloon fans from all over the world. The highlight of this 43rd edition of the International Hot-Air Balloon Festival, which will bring together balloonists from some twenty countries and a hundred or so hot-air balloons, will be the Night Glow event. In this night-time sound and light show, some twenty hot-air balloons, paragliders, members of the Swiss Ski School and pyrotechnicians will work together to set the night alight in a unique Alpine performance. This year’s event will also include the screening of award-winning films at the Diablerets International Alpine Film Festival (FIFAD), as well as a series of lectures.Visit
