Enjoy the first-row seat in the sky above Allgäu together with your loved ones. This balloon ride allows you to have the basket completely to yourselves and thus spend an unforgettable time with family or friends. You see the world from a very special perspective, from which people discovered the "sea of the air " for the first time more than 200 years ago.
We have different take-off spots around Sonthofen and Kempten, from which we choose the best according to wind and weather conditions.
The Allgäu is known as one of the most picturesque regions of Germany, so prepare for gorgeous views of the green hills and clear lakes from above, with the majestic peaks of the Alps in the background.
- Before take-off:
We meet at the agreed time at Landhotel Bauer in Sonthofen. Here you are greeted by us and we make our way to the starting point of the day. Once there, you receive a safety briefing before we prepare the balloon for the flight together as a team. While setting up the balloon you already learn a lot about the balloonists' secrets. As soon as the balloon is ready, we climb into the basket and the ride can begin.
- During the ride:
During the trip, you are standing in the basket and can enjoy the great view over the Allgäu. Of course, you can also take pictures of the landscape and your fellow travellers which will remind you of this unique experience for a long time to come. After about 1.5 hours we will land on a suitable meadow.
- After landing:
At the landing site, we are already expected by the ground crew with their offroad vehicles. After packing up the balloon they will take you back to the starting point at Landhotel Bauer. As a final highlight, the traditional balloonist "baptism" awaits you, where you will be raised to the nobility of balloonists and receive a certificate for your first successful balloon flight.

I would 100% recommend this private ballon ride, as the scenery is absolutely stunning in the Oberallgäu region of the Bavarian Alps. The Bavarian people are super and make this such a very enjoyable ...
