Fly over Paris and enjoy a bird’s eye view

02/13/2014

Get on board the biggest hot-air balloon in the world. Flying 150 meters high, you will enjoy a bird’s eye view of Paris. A unique experience!

The Ballon de Paris gets you started with aerostat flight. As from 2008, the hot-air ballon also became an indicator of air quality. The Balloon turns from green to red according to the quality of the surrounding air in Paris.

The Ballon de Paris flies 150 meters high. It can be seen 20 kilometers around, and it is actually seen daily by 400,000 people. Attached to the ground by a cable controlled by a hydroelectric winch, it is the least contaminating aircraft in the world.
