This museum provides a history of hot air ballooning including the round-the-world flight by Bertrand Piccard and Brian Jones in the Breitling Orbiter 3 (1999). Château d'Oex celebrated the 20st anniversary of this event at the 41st edition of the International Balloon Festival. This meet takes place each year in late January. It lasts 8 days and attracts around 80 balloon crews and up to 35,000 spectators. One of the most striking events during the ballon festival is the famous Son et Lumière Night-Glow which takes place in the early evening. The balloons are lined up on the hills behind Château-d’Oex and inflated in unison. Their gas burners light up the night sky and the balloons are silhouetted against the mountains. The Espace Balloon is a great way to find out about hot air ballooning and the role that Château d'Oex plays in promoting this sport. If you haven't visited the Pays d'Enhaut area during the balloon festival then it's definitely something to add to your list!
Beautiful exposure around the hot air balloon. Interesting for adults and children.
