In 1909 Bruno Bieler from Freiburg jumped 22 metres on the first „large“ hill in Oberstdorf on the “Schanze auf den Halden” which was an outstanding performance at that time. Oberstdorf was the place in Germany where ski jumping was most developed at that time.
In order to form more good jumpers it was necessary to build larger ski jumping hills. The jump in Karatsbichl got concurrency after the efforts made by the spa director Hermann Schallhammer to build in a better jump on Schattenberg, constructed by the architect Hans Gschwender. The hill was inaugurated on December 27, 1925 and later enlarged for hosting the German Championships in 1930 and the Olympic qualifiers in 1936.
After World War II the "ski jumping trio of Oberstdorf", consisting of Heini Klopfer, Toni Brutscher and Sepp Weiler, immediately started to revive Schattenbergschanze and club activities of SC Oberstdorf swiftly re-gained momentum. Already on January 1, 1946 the hill was reused for jumping and in 1949-50 it was reconstructed into a large hill according to plans made by Klopfer. By 1950, the hill record was increased to 82 metres by Sepp Weiler. On January 4, 1953, Schattenbergschanze was hosting for the first time a competition of the newly established Four Hills Tournament.
Though the wooden K70 hill had been continuously enlarged, it had become out-dated over the years and just in time four the Four Hills Tournament in 1972, a new, modern K110 hill with an inrun tower made from reinforced concrete was constructed beside. The hill was also supposed to act as a backup venue for the ski flying world championships in 1973. Around the same time, the plastic covered K56 practicing hill was built and opened in 1974. Furthermore, in 1978-79 also the 70 meter normal hill was modernized as K85.
In 1987 the Schattenberg ski stadium was host of Nordic Ski World Championships with enormous accounts of ten thousands of spectators. Therefore, the normal hill was re-constructed as K90 with a reinforced concrete inrun tower. Further changes to the ski jumping facility were made in 1997, when the inclined elevator was built and the junior hills K30 and K20 were added.
Then, Ski-Club Oberstdorf was again awarded to host the Nordic World Championships in 2005. Therefore, the ski jumping facility was fundamentally modernized for 16.6m Euro in 2002. Since the inauguration with the Four Hills Tournament competition in 2003, the arena of Oberstdorf consists of the Schattenbergschanzen K120, K90, K56, K30 and K19. Beside the ski jumping hills, also general infrastructure was improved by constructing two lifts and a world wide unique spectator stand which can host up to 24,000 spectators.
In spring 2011 the around 4.7m Euro expensive modernization of the normal hill had started. The 30 year old inrun tower of K90 was torn down and replaced by a new one, which was moved backwards by 6.2 m. The new K95 / HS 106 ski jump was completed in November 2011. Furthermore, the K57 hill was modernized in 2015 and its decades old inrun had been renewed.
Since December 2004, the Schattenberg ski jumping stadium had been officially called "Erdinger Arena". In December 2017, the title sponsor and name have changed to "Audi Arena Oberstdorf".

Tournee 2020/21

Warum beginnt man die Vierschanzen-Tounee 2021 nicht mit den Neujahrsspringen in Garmisch und beendet diese am 9.-10.Januar mit 2 Skifliegen auf der Flugschanze Oberstdorf?
