Mühlenkopfschanze is a ski jumping hill located in Willingen, Germany. The audience capacity is 35,000. It is the largest ski jumping hill in the world, and holds World Cup events every year. The current hill record was set by Janne Ahonen in 2005. Ahonen actually jumped 155.5 metres, but the measuring system could only measure as far as 152 m, thus downgrading Ahonen's record to this figure.[citation needed] Jurij Tepeš equalled this distance in 2014.
