About us

Windwerk is the only indoor skydiving wind tunnel in German Switzerland and is therefore a one-of-a-kind sport and leisure attraction for the region. Learn more about us below.

The wind tunnel

Where people can fly.

The wind tunnel is based on a state-of-the-art facility belonging to the ISG Group (Indoor Skydiving Germany Group). ‘Made in Germany’ – or in other words: top quality, elegant design and maximum safety.

At 17 metres tall and with a diameter of 4.3 metres, the vertical wind tunnel is generously proportioned. It is also surrounded by glass: you always have a clear view in our wind tunnel. Even at wind speeds of 160 to 280 km/h. Four fans provide an even air flow and ensure optimum conditions for beginners and professionals alike.

Sustainability is also important to us: we use the waste heat generated for heating and hot water.

Windwerk AG

The company

Windwerk AG was founded by experienced indoor skydivers Tobias Oertle, Andri Steinmann and Reto Welti. The project was implemented with the support of three other Swiss investors.
