Red Bull Skateburg in Passau

This weekend the “Veste Oberhaus” in Passau transformed from medival castle into a skatepark. Red Bull invited 55 skaters to Lower Bavaria for a one of a kind contest that was the brainchild of Andreas Schützenberger, the man behind IOU Ramps, who also set up the obstacles.

The first spot consisted of quarters and a wallride, built into the “bear pit” of the Oberhaus. The second one had a granite ledge, London gap and bank right at the bottom of the castle tower and for the grand finale Schützi turned a handrail into a 4,5 meters long sword.

The invited skaters were a mix of locals, some well known German riders like Paul Zenner, Stephan Pöhlmann or Jost Arens, and Chris Haslam as a special guest, who helped Schützi setting up the ramps as well.

In the end Simon Stricker from Switzerland and Alisa Fessl from Austria became King and Queen of the castle.
