History:

During the FIS Congress in Prague in 1922, the international ski congress tournament – which was then from 1925 on called “World Championships“ – were appointed to Harrachov. Therefore a new ski jump should be build. Both ski clubs cooperated on the construction of “Kongress-Schanze” at 950 m high Vogelstein (cz. Ptačinec), which could be inaugurated already on December 10, 1922. A novelty with this hill was a phone connection between inrun and outrun!
Europe’s best athletes competed in the Kongress Tournament in 1923, but an audience of 10,000 spectators only got to see distances up to 34.5 m. This lead to an immediate reconstruction of the hill in summer, including an inrun tower. Later Willen Dick realized a hill record of 49 meters during Czech Nationals there in 1927.
In 1928 the decision was made to build an even larger hill, which was situated about 200 meters above and inaugurated as “Verbandsschanze” in 1930. The hill was projected by Karel Jarolimek with a modern profile, but it was prone to wind and thus the inrun tower even collapsed during a storm in 1937. The hill record on it was then 69.5 meters.
