The International Balloon Festival in the picturesque alpine village of Chateau d'Oex, Switzerland, has been held for three decades. This 33rd year at the Swiss resort were 18 pilots from different countries and about 80 hot air balloons of different sizes, colors and patterns.

Held in January each year, the International Balloon Festival attracts ballooners from around the globe. The picture of colorful balloons against the snow-capped Alpine peaks is unforgettable.
