for the perfect flight
The most beautiful time is early morning, around sunrise. For people who like to lie in, there are evening flights, with lift-off approximately two hours before sunset. After a flight of between one to one-and-a-half hours, the crew will bring you back to the Apfelwirt. The whole experience is rounded off by a ballooning “baptism” and a light meal.
Please wear comfortable clothing suitable for the time of year (similar to hiking wear). The temperature on board is not much cooler than on the ground. Please wear sturdy shoes. On no account should high heels be worn. Children are, of course, welcome, however they should be a minimum of 140 cm tall (approx. 8 years old).
Please note that hot air ballooning is very weather dependent. It is entirely the responsibility of the pilot to decide whether or not it is safe to lift off. This decision is taken with the professional help of the aviation weather service. We therefore ask you to phone us before your arrival so that we can appraise you of the weather conditions. If the weather is not suitable for a flight, a new date will be arranged.
