*"Tour dör d'Schwiiz" project 2020: In the summer of 2020, I wrote my Matura thesis under the title "Tour dör d'Schwiiz". In a total of 38 days, I visited all 250 cities in Switzerland on my racing bike - these are places with more than 10,000 inhabitants or places that fulfill certain historical criteria - and also climbed the highest mountain in each of the 26 cantons. Almost 7000 kilometers, 100,000 meters of altitude and 52 passes crossed, to name a few facts. There were also some rather extreme tours, 500 kilometers at one stretch with the racing bike, 13 passes in two days or the Dufourspitze and the Finsteraarhorn on foot as a day tour from the valley, for example.
And since I enjoyed this "Tour dör d'Schwiiz" so much, I would like to play the same game again in the ten months from November between military service and university, just this time all over Europe.
My values: It is not the medals and trophies from competitive sports that drive me outdoors every day in wind and weather, but the joy and passion for endurance sports, the mountains, nature, adventure. When it comes to personal projects, I prefer to go "fast and light", which in turn results in the need for maximum quality, functionality, durability and innovation in equipment.
When it comes to communication and media, professionality, creativity and honesty are especially important to me.
