What an awesome winter flight over Stuttgart! We had had three attempts on this with the Ballonsportgruppe Stuttgart e.V., but on the fourth advent weekend we finally were lucky and enjoyed the magnificent views over the capital of Baden-Wurttemberg. But see for yourself! :-) [...]
Best way to start a new week! Yesterday, we enjoyed a wonderful gasballoon flight from Stuttgart to Krumbach, with over 8 hours in the air and beautiful views of the city of Ulm, the majestic Alps in the distance, and of course the magical winter landscape. What a treat! :-) [...]
Oh what a year! =) The adventures of 2022 have truly left us speechless, from the snowy Filzmoos mountains to the fascinating Saudi Arabian desert, from the golden fields of Umbria to the stunning mass ascents at Albuquerque… this may very well be our best ballooning year ever. We want to express our heartfelt thanks [...]
When you’re into ballooning, sooner or later you’ll end up in Albuquerque, they say. For me, it took a while, but thanks to Siebel Ballooning and Holzwerk Ballonteam, this year the dream finally came true! Altogether, we spent eleven days in Albuquerque, living through almost every form of weather there is: Beautiful sunshine, pouring rain, [...]

After the ‘Kieler Woche’ had been cancelled in 2020 and 2021 and only was carried out as a small – but no less beautiful – balloon meeting in September, the original event returned in 2022! And after we had had the sensational number of ten flights in September 2021, we never would have believed that [...]
The passion of a lifetime: To behold the stunning beauty of our world like no one else, free like a bird, high in the sky, yet one with nature, using the oldest principle of flight known to man: Lighter than air.
No wings, no noise, no pressure… just serenity, just perfect bliss. At one with the elements… at one with yourself.
This is why we live A LIFE OF BALLOONING.
