New Spirit Balloons is a non-profit association founded in 2010 with its headquarters in Altwies. Carlo Arendt, founder and pilot, received his license in 2008 and became the general importer of the Kubicek brand.


Today New Spirit Balloons association has 5 balloons of different shape and size, including the largest in Luxembourg which can accommodate up to 12 people.

Before taking off, you participate in the assembly of the balloon. For this unique experience, discover the secret world of hot air balloon flights from beginning to end. The installation is a fascinating moment when the balloon inflates like a giant. 


Then comes the time of takeoff and once in the air, time seems to stop. Float in the wind over the green meadows, forests and Luxembourg, along the Moselle and enjoy the unique charm of this flight...

Our pilot is always available to provide you with information and answer your questions. After landing, we take you to celebrate this special moment with a glass of crémant. Your pilot will give you your certificate of baptism, which will end this day full of emotions.


Our fleet consists of four hot-air balloons, including LX-BIG, the largest Luxembourg balloon, an airship and also gas balloons.
