History:

The 1925 founded Wintersportverein Bad Brambach inaugurated the Adolf-Hayer-Schanze at Sorgebachtal in 1935. It was named after the club's chairman and general director of the spa town and the cup tournaments there caused a good resonance of spa guests as spectators. After World War II the ski jump was still used until 1949, but then dismantled.
With the founding of BSG Empor Bad Brambach in 1950 also the winter sports section became active and opened the Wachtbergschanze near Hohendorf mill on January 11, 1953. The 5.5 m high inrun tower was set up by voluntary workers and after that many competitions had been organized on the ski jump with participants from the whole Vogtland. The last jumps on Wachtbergschanze were made in 1978 and then the ramshackle hill had to be dismantled.
In the meantime there had been the smaller Pionierschanze at Eichlersberg from 1970 to 1981, but after mild winters and interventions into a private estate it had to be torn down in 1980-81.
By the way, Bad Brambach had been an official training center of SC Dynamo Klingenthal for cross-country and ski jumping for a short while from 1972 to 1974. There was a young coach of DHfK Leipzig to train the youngsters. It was Uwe Müßiggang, who then became national coach of ladies biathletes short time after the political turn-over in 1991. Under his direction Germany became one of the leading countries in ladies biathlon.
