The International Hot Air Balloon Festival in Château d'Oex
The 37th International Hot Air Balloon Festival – one of the most highly anticipated events for European balloonists and aerial sports fans – took place from Saturday 24th January to Sunday 1st February 2015 in Château d’Oex in Switzerland.
Widely acclaimed as one of the top ten events of the year in the country, it is a real privilege to climb into the basket of a hot air balloon and float up over the peaks, while enjoying the sight of other balloons slowly waltzing by.
Having acted as "Presenting Sponsor" for the event since 2006, Parmigiani Fleurier was delighted to take part again in this year's aerial show with its hot air balloon – bearing the motto "Time is Flying" – and to share the enchanting landscapes of the Swiss Alps with its customers and friends worldwide.
Parmigiani invited its guests to discover the Parmigiani Studio in Gstaad, nestled in a typical Swiss chalet in the heart of the village. Some participants had set off in their balloons from their various locations to join in a unique flight organised this year.
Parmigiani Fleurier was delighted to have participated once again in this 37th Festival and really enjoyed taking part in the events organised with its loyal friends.
