Our STAHLWILLE hot-air balloon at WIM 2019

Warsteiner International Montgolfiade


As some of you may have seen from our Instagram story, the STAHLWILLE hot-air balloon was in action at the Warsteiner International Montgolfiade (WIM) last weekend.

The WIM is the largest annual hot-air balloon festival in Europe and offers 9 days of entertainment through daily balloon launches in the morning and evening, where it is also possible to book a trip on-board. There are also many other family-orientated activities like a fair, helicopter flights etc.

Anyone who wanted to follow the STAHLWILLE balloon for a day at WIM 2019 had to get up very early on Saturday. Our community was able to accompany Dirk, our balloon pilot, during the preparations, take-off, landing and everything else that is part of the hot-air balloon experience. At the glider airfield in Oeventrop in the Sauerland region, the STAHLWILLE balloon took off at around 6 a.m., and then passed over the Möhnetalsperre reservoir dam on a 35 kilometre adventure flight.

It was a great weekend and we were very pleased to be represented with the STAHLWILLE balloon at the WIM and wish you a lot of fun at the event.
