The Bergisel ski stadium at Innsbruck became famous by its special design and numerous ski jumping competitions. Its impressive proximity to the city center offers visitors a spectacular panoramic view of the surrounding mountains and the town.
The ski jumping hill underwent a changeful history so far. Already in 1906 the "Ski-Club Innsbruck" was founded and its members competed on several sow jumping hills in the surrounding area of Innsbruck. The first permanent ski jump was set up by SCI at "Husslhof" in 1908. It already hosted international competitions.
The first ski jump at Bergisel was inaugurated in 1927. Heinrich Mayerl from Gastein set up the hill record at 47.5 meters. For the Ski World Championships in 1933 Bergisel ski jump was completely reconstructed. Norway's Birger Ruud set up a hill record of 74 meters, after Swiss Marcel Reymond had become world champion.
On the occasion of a football youth tournament in 1941 the teams of SV Villingen and SV Innsbruck visited the ramshackle ski jump at Bergisel. Thereby the inrun tower collapsed and caused 4 people dead and several injured. Then the whole ski jumping facility was completely removed.
After World War II the ski jump was reconstructed according to original plans and inaugurated in 1949. Since the founding in 1953 the Bergisel competition has been part of the traditional German-Austrian ski jumpers' resp. four hills tournament.
Twice Innsbruck was host for the Olympic Winter Games and for the 1964 and 1976 Olympiads the ski jump was modernized according to latest standards and enlarged and spectator and multi-purpose facilities were added. In cooperation with Seefeld the large hill events of the Nordic World Championships of 1985 were hosted on the large hill at Bergisel.
For the 50th anniversary of the international Four Hills Tournament in 2002 Bergisel ski stadium should shine in a completely new light. For a total cost of arround 12 million Euro the Bergisel ski jump was completely modernized and reconstructed. Due to a special request of the Innsbruck municipality an international architecture competition was announced and six famous local and foreign architects were invited. The expert jury consentaneously awarded the project proposal of London-based architect firm Zaha Hadid. Beside the futuristic inrun tower and the enlargement of the landing hill profile onto K120, in several construction steps a new lift, floodlights and plastic covering were installed.
Since then also a few summer Grand Prix events were hosted on Bergisel, as well as the Universiade in 2005 and the first ever Youth Olympic Winter Games in 2012, with ski jumping events staged at Seefeld. In December 2012 a new cooling system was integrated into the outrun, in order to fulfill latest standards and requirements of the FIS.

Antworten auf Fragen

Hier sind Antworten auf unten gestellte Fragen.

ad 3) und 7)
Im Bergiselstadion darf keine Flutlichtanlage errichtet werden, nicht weil es die Verantwortlichen nicht möchten, sondern weil sich die Anrainer entgegenstellen.

ad 6)
Die zugelassene Zuschauerzahl wurde nach dem Unglück beim "Air and Style" am 4.12.1999, bei dem nach einer Massenpanik 5 Tote und 4 schwer Verletzte gegeben hat, drastisch reduziert. In folge dessen wurden auch viele Zuschauerplätze rechts und links vom Aufsprunghügel zurück gebaut.

The 2017 4 hills competition at Innsbruck was spoiled by the lack of floodlighting, making it impossible to extend the competition beyond sunset, leading to the cancellation of the second round. It is an irony that that the ski jump is an architectural masterpiece, but is severely limited by the lack of floodlighting. I think this is a great pity, because from a TV exposure point of view, the ability to hold evening events would greatly enhance the standing of this famous ski jumping facility.

warum ist die zugelassene zuseherzahl so drastisch gesunken? bei olympia 76 waren noch knapp 60.000 im bergiselstadion, oder?

Flutlichtanlage ???

Ich bin ein wirklich begeisterter Fan vom Skispringen, verfolge jeden Weltcup im Fernsehen, aber dass, was ich beim 3. Springen der Vierschanzentournee in Innsbruck am Bergisel im Kommentar von Dirk Thiele auf Eurosport erfuhr, macht mich ernsthaft sehr nachdenklich !
Er berichtete, dass das Springen auf jeden Fall vor Einbruch der Dunkelheit beendet sein muss, da die Schanze in Innsbruck keine Flutlichtanlage zur Verfügung hat !
Aber... Weltcupaustragungsorte wie Willingen z.B. erhielten von der FIS die Auflage, eine feste Flutlichtanlage zu installieren. Wenn nicht, wird der Weltcup für Willingen gestrichen !
Und nur, weil in Innsbruck ein Springen der Vierschanzentournee ausgetragen wird braucht der Veranstalter einfach keine Flutlichtanlage zu installieren ? Warum nicht gleiches Recht für alle ?
Ich persönlich empfinde dies als sehr unfair von der FIS, denn die Vierschanzetournee zählt offiziell zum Weltcup, genau so wie auch all die anderen Austragungsorte auf der Welt. Und die MÜSSEN sich an die Auflagen der FIS halten und Innsbruck sollte das auch ! Dafür habe ich einfach kein Verständnis, tut mir leid. Jeder Austragungsort MUSS die Richtlinien der FIS erfüllen. AUCH am Bergisel. So einfach ist das !
Fairness wird so groß geschrieben im Sport. Und das bitte soll Fairness sein ?

Müsste der Schanzenrekord nicht die 137m von Stefan Kraft sein? Hayböck ist doch gestürtzt (in den Schnee gegriffen...)???
