Anyone visiting Inzell, the gateway to the Berchtesgadener Land region, between 19 and 24 January 2014 may find themselves reaching unexpected heights. Even from the ground the colourful hot air balloons that fill the skies during the Inzell Balloon Fiesta are a magnificent sight. If you do get the chance to ride in one you will be able to enjoy unparalleled views of Alpine scenery covered in fresh snow. The week-long fiesta ends with the traditional 'nightglow' event, a display of illuminated stationary hot air balloons accompanied by music and a spectacular fire show.
During the winter months the Chiemgau Alps are ideal for scenic walks through snow-covered landscapes.
