Hot air balloons Mass ascents

Every day, morning and evening, several hundred hot-air balloons take to the air to offer an extraordinary show to the Grand Est Mondial Air Ballons’ visitors. Between the two take-offs, there are more than 50 animations on the ground and in the air to animate your day!

Every day, morning and evening

The Night Glow

A magical moment for the whole family: the balloons line up in the night and illuminate their envelopes with the light of their burners’ flames. A festival of colorful bubbles to light up your evening at #GEMAB.

Wednesday July 28th

The burners song

The baskets line up on the runway and activate their burners to the rhythm of the music. The evening flight is cancelled? Don’t worry, you won’t leave without having had your fill of it!

If, by any chance, it doesn’t fly!

Balloon Flea Market

Just like a flea market, the pilots set up their stands at the entrance of the pilots’ passage. Pins, caps, jackets, aeronautical material… A great opportunity to make good deals!
