The MoselBallonFiesta is the second largest balloon event in Germany and attracts up to 20,000 visitors every year. Up to 80 teams and more start every year from the airfield in Föhren near Trier. The "splendid and peaceful" sky rises and fascinates young and old.
The two fox hunts in the evening - the "Vet Concept Cup" on Friday and the "SWT Cup" on Saturday - are thrilling due to the high number of balloons taking off at the same time. The Fly-Inn "Westfa-, IDEAL- and TechniSat-Cup" on Saturday morning with the spectacular race of hot air balloons to the Föhren airfield attracts families, couples and groups to the festival ground for a breakfast picnic. A special highlight of the event is the "Streif-NightGlow" on Friday evening. Selected advertising balloons glow in the dark to the beat of the music.
