Like all winter sports resorts in the Bavarian Forest, Bayerisch Eisenstein only had one snow jump at the beginning of the 1920s. There was the ski jump on the Häuslberg, later the one on the Seitzhügel. The first publicly mentioned jumping competitions had been recorded in 1912!
After the First World War the call for a better and bigger ski jumping hill became loud and in the period from 1925 to 1927 Munich Reichswehr pioneers built the Bayerwaldschanze. After it was opened, a year later it was provided with an extended wooden structure, and thus jumps of 35 to 45 m were possible. In 1930 the Bavarian Championships were held successfully and there were many Gaume Championship competitions until 1940.
In 1949, the ski club started to rebuild the ski jump and reconstructed the take-off table and the inrun as a wooden structure. In 1952 the large, 20-meter high wooden inrun tower was built, so that the K-point was now 57 m. A little later, the smaller K38 youth ski jump was built.
In 1968 the dilapidated inrun tower had to be blown up and in the 1970s only the smaller natural hill existed. In 1980 ski jumping revived and with the help of English pioneers - they exercised winter camps in Bavaria - the new profile of the natural hill K53 was built. The last reconstruction took place in 1990, where the Bayerwaldschanze was expanded again to a 60-meter hill.
In 1998-1999, the plans for the construction of the Arber ski area performance center also included the reconstruction of the two Bayerwaldschanzen. However, this had to be discarded by the ski association for financial reasons. Since the beginning of the 2000s there has been no jumping on the Bayerwaldschanzen and the first birch trees are growing on the landing slope.
