Take off on this hot air balloon ride near the Dutch border, under an hour away from Münster! A unique experience which you can share with friends and family.
This balloon ride starts every day of the year just after sunrise and two to three hours before sunset. These are the best times to enjoy the beautiful landscape along the Dutch border, close to Münster.
The main starting points are in Südlohn, Stadtlohn, Vreden, and Borken and are selected by the pilots depending on wind conditions on the day. Südlohn is the general meeting point. From there the group starts or drives together with the experienced pilots to another starting meadow if the weather conditions demand it.
After half an hour of construction, in which you actively participate, the balloon is ready to start. The balloons have different sizes (3-6 passengers) but can lift groups up to 20 people at the same time in the air.
The rise of the balloon is calm and gentle. The ground crew is in constant radio contact with the pilot and follows the balloon in the escort vehicle. During the journey, which direction is determined solely by the wind, you float almost silently in the sky. In harmony with nature, you can relax and enjoy the space and freedom in the sky. After 1 to 1 1/2 hours riding time, the pilot chooses a landing meadow and lets the balloon slide back to earth.
Before returning to the starting point after a total of 4-5 hours of adventure with the team, the traditional landing party will be celebrated. With a hearty balloon baptism, the pilot raises you to the aristocracy of the balloonists and presents you with a baptismal certificate.
Enjoy a relaxing and adventurous time with friends and family, or a romantic trip with your loved one.
