Jochen Schweizer – You are what you experience (Du bist, was due erlebst) is the slogan of the company founded and managed by ex-stuntman, bungee jumping pioneer and German extreme sports legend Jochen Schweizer. The 58-year-old entrepreneur, author, investor and motivational speaker is building “a home” for his 500 employee strong group of companies on the outskirts of Munich, in Taufkirchen.
In cooperation with Airbus he is currently building an adventure park that will also offer indoor surfing on a steady wave (a so called “citywave”, which will make it possible to learn to surf within a day) and a realistic indoor skydiving vertical wind “body flying” tunnel (18 meters deep plus 32 meter tower above it) on a 15,000 square meter areal.
The works on the park began this spring and the “Jochen Schweizer Welt” is planned to open its doors in early 2017. Schweizer will invest around ten million Euros in the park with which he aims to create “perfect moments” for its visitors. He said about the park: “"Similar to the BMW Welt for BMW, the LEGOLAND for LEGO or the Autostadt for Volkswagen, the Jochen Schweizer world will make the brand Jochen Schweizer touchable and tangible.”
