Adventurer | World Record Slackliner | Speaker
Ever since I was born in Rosenheim in 1991 the mountains nearby have been my home.
As a boy I went climbing, hiking, skiing, canyoning, caving and mountain biking.
However, when I was standing on a slackline for the first time in summer 2008, I knew: this is exactly the type of sport that I’ve always wanted to do! In June 2010 I walked my first highline and after I had graduated from High School in April 2011, I could fully concentrate on slacklining. Since then I have achieved great results and realized many projects together with my team.
Current best achievements:
World record waterline with 674 meters length, WanFo lake, CHINA (current world record)
World record highline with 680 meters length (categorie Polyamid/Nylon), Vancouver, CAN (current world record)
World record urban highline with 217m length and 247m height, Mexico City (current world record)
World record longline with 610 meters length, CHINA (current world record)
Projects I've been involved with:
We had the privilege of working with the Federal Foreign Office on various occasions before: In Beijing, Mexico City, Washington D.C. and, of course, in the context of #BuildingBridges. August 17, 2019 was a special day for us because we were invited to the Foreign Office's Open Day in Berlin. Not only were we to set up and walk a Highline, which was attached to the flagpole of the roof terrace of Foreign Minister Heikeo Maas. We also presented our #BuildingBridges films to the public for the first time.
In Monument Valley we realized a unique and long-held dream: BuildingBridges.
Rigging the longest (217 m) and at the same time highest (247 m) urban highline line was almost as demanding as the walk itself, which tested Alex limits and for which he needed all his experiences.
650 meters long & 200 meters high – a storm blowing hard at 100 km/h impeded Alex from crossing the longest nylon slackline in the French Auvergne at first.
As a part of the festivities regarding the 25th anniversary of Ötzi (5300 year old mummy found on the glacier above the lake) Alex cruised 535 m over the beautiful Vernagt lake.
Aerial stunt with airplane pilot Kirby Chambliss and highliner Alexander Schulz on a 250 m long highline 300 meters above the sea at "Tetakawi" in Sonora, Mexico.
Epic slackline adventure on defense towers from World War II in the North Sea.
Only as a team and with lots of digging could the longest slackline of the world be realized successfully in a chinese desert.
Looking for an aesthetic urban highline we ended up in the most ugly European city. As so often Johannes was the one to keep us going. Without him this project would have never been realized.
During his first slackline trip to China Alex managed to walk a 375 m long highline and thus broke the old world record by more than 70 m.
By walking the entire 327 m long slackline over water Alex improved the record in waterlining once more.
On August 14th 2014 Alex sent a 271 m long slackline over the harbor basin of the North Sea island of Helgoland and thus gained back the world record in waterlining.
A highline between two cable cars at Zugspitze 2800 m above sea level. Walking between swinging cable cars 150 m over the glacier was a unique experience for Alexander Schulz and Niklas Winter.
On this day we rigged a 196 m long waterline over a lake and Alex could walk it just like that the first time he tried.
With this urban highline between Pfeifturm and Moritzkirche in Ingolstadt we rigged the first slackline at, respectively over, a German church.
In the Bavarian Alpes Alex walked a 140-meter-long highline in summer 2013 breaking the highline world record.
We were to go south to escape the low temperatures in March. The two most suitable places were the French coast near Cassis with its precipitous rock walls and Catalonian Montserrat in Spain. However, in the end it was snowing even in Spain...
The longest polyester slackline of the world. A bavarian meadow full of sheeps, good friends and beautiful autumn weather were the ingredients for this undertaking.
After having failed the first time in spring 2012, we rigged the 110-meter-long polyester highline – the longest ever rigged so far – during the First Slackline Festival at Hochkönig.
A dinner on a space line!
Find out here how this idea came about and how it was realized!
Alex realized his dream by walking the first 300-meter-long polyester slackline. Watch the pictures, the video and read the report here.
Illegal highlines in a closed down refinery, which was about to be pulled down. Here you find the pictures with our report.
skiing + slackline = fun²
During his two-month highline trip in the USA Alex breaks the highline world record a second time. Furthermore he rigs and walks the first ever “Space Highline” of the world.
40m long beautiful but illegal urban midline at the Friedensengel in Munich.
Alex first world record - He was the only one from the german and austrian slackline elite able to cross the slackline set up across the swimming lake of Uttendorf.
