Germany’s first inland surf park secures approval

Plans to build Germany's first inland surf park have been approved by the Hallbergmoos municipality government in Munich.

The decision will pave the way for the development of Surftown MUC, located close to the Munich international airport to the north of the city.

Surftown MUC will offer waves which can be generated every 10 seconds and last up to 180 meters, thanks to surf pool technology called Endless Surf, developed by Canadian company WhiteWater.

In addition to the surfing, the 20,000sqm facility will include a number of other leisure and wellness amenities – including health and fitness areas, restaurants and bars and a surf & lifestyle retail area, as well as lounge areas by a man-made beach.

Marketed as a sports and leisure park, the development will look to appeal to all ages and surf skill levels, from professionals to newcomers.

The focus is set on creating an atmosphere that promotes the fun of the sport and offers an "authentic surf and lifestyle experience" for everyone.

The project is the brainchild of three business partners, Chris Boehm-Tettelbach, Conrad Albert and Michi Mohr.

"With our different backgrounds – in development, investment, and surfing – we complement each other perfectly, said Chris Boehm-Tettelbach, adding that the team also shares the focus on making the venue a sustainable surf park.

“Besides the fun of surfing, we are also united by the absolute conviction that a project like Surftown MUC can only be innovative if it is also designed to be sustainable and climate-neutral.”

This in mind, the venue is set to source all its electricity from renewable energy sources – including 80 per cent from the company’s own photovoltaic systems.

In addition, WhiteWater's Endless Surf uses a flexible pneumatic system (using a number of pressurized air chambers) to produce wave-making energy. Through the flexible design, the operator can cater usage to pool capacity and conserve energy.

Work on the project is now set to begin later this year, with a grand opening planned for 2023.
