Float into the Sunrise in a Hot-Air Balloon
The balloon envelope stretched out on the ground slowly billows and fills, its folds smooth, and now balloon pilot Dunker Müller can start firing the gas burner. A flame, first golden, then pale-blue, hisses and roars as it shoots upwards and into the red balloon. Two assistants keep hold of the opening so that the air from the fan and the burner flame can enter unhindered. Slowly the envelope straightens up and takes shape. Just minutes later, the hot air captured inside the balloon is pulling the basket and its passengers skywards. It’s time for the adventure high above the intact natural and cultural landscape of HOLIDAY region Rotenburg (Wümme) to begin.
Don’t miss out on the chance to enjoy a breathtaking view of this magnificent countryside – book yourself a ride in a hot-air balloon!
You don’t have to book a long time ahead to secure yourself a place on a balloon ride. The balloons usually take off at sunrise or in the late afternoon for trips that last five to six hours. Take-off location by arrangement.
