In the southwestern city border at the Diehloe mountains skiers from Fürstenberg and Eisenhüttenstadt were already jumping on a small natural 15 meter hill in 1962.
Facing the target to built up a winter sports centre, ski jumping fascinated members of BSG Motor Eisenhüttenstadt - ski section started to create an enlarged 25 meter hill with wooden inrun tower beside the also new-built cross-country trails and the alpine skiing hill which was already existing. This jump was then opened in winter 1963/64.
But already in 1968 the dilapidated wooden parts were removed and replaced by a new steel inrun tower which was based on a concrete fundament. By the way, the steel parts were taken from an old ship lying in 30 km apart Müllrose at Oder-Spree-channel. This steel could not be fused together and so the tower is just a simple screwed construction.
In the snow-secure winters following many competitions like district or regional championships, but also three hills tournaments with Bad Freienwalde and Rauen were hosted. These competitions were sometimes attended by up to 1,500 spectators.
The skiing cabin at the outrun was built in 1973 and two years later the inrun tower was improved with the support of local industries.
Last competitions were held in 1985/86 and since the German unification no official competitions have taken place. Just like in many other smaller ski clubs winters without snow, decreasing interest and a lack of jumpers were the reasons which took ski jumping there to an end. But alpine skiing is still performed and the low-corrosion tower was still standing in reminiscence.
After a first unofficial competition in 2003, the ski jumping hill in Diehloe hills was reactivated by Fürstenberger SV for a winter sports festival on 2010-01-24, with Tobias Ostermann of WSV Bad Freienwalde even setting up a new hill record of 30.5 meters.
