Flight KB 6055

From Kirchberg to Bouaké: Flight KB6055


In 2021, Kirchberg will be celebrating its 60thanniversary. Well, Fondation Follereau will be celebrating it’s 55th! What a coincidence Let’s celebrate this together and offer something a little uncommon to people in Luxembourg City: a hot-air balloon flight! Bouaké is a city in Ivory Coast where the Fondation Follereau acts together with its local partners to support the most vulnerable populations.


“Passengers for the flight KB6055 from Kirchberg to Bouaké are requested to go to the boarding gate” That is pretty much how it would sound like once we are all set! An Ethiopian food-truck will join the event and offer food and drinks to people to be able to enjoy the view from the ground as well ! A Senegalese craftsman who creates beautiful outdoor furniture will join as well and create a colorful and festive set-up.


The flights will be launched from the Parc des Trois Glands behind Philharmonie, MUDAM and Fort Thüngen, to give people an amazing view of Luxembourg and Kirchberg. On top, we would organize for a drawing to be set-up on the ground with the shape of Africa.


Saturday 4th of September 2021, in the afternoon until sunset.


Anyone who is not scared of heights and is taller than 1,20 m. But everyone can watch and enjoy the food, music, etc…
