History:

The Johannes-Neuber-Schanze in the Silbermannstadt Frauenstein was inaugurated in 1924 and used for ski jumping until the early 1970s.
In the beginning, it was called Burgschanze, or also Parkschanze, since the wooden and later even adjustable inrun structure was situated inside the fortress ruin. The inrun track went through the open fortress walls and then the 36 degrees step landing hill followed in the park. This ski jumping hill was built by local Johannes Georg (Hans) Neuber, who was a skiing instructor at the 1920 founded ski club of Frauenstein. Inspired by ski jumping by seasonal jobs in Switzerland, he built the ski jumping hill in his hometown.
Hans Neuber survived World War I as a casualty and was considered a nature lover with technical, but also artistic skills, such as painting. The reclusively living maverick and ski jumping hill constructor died in 1968 in the Silbermannstadt and left behind the ski jumping hills which he built by his own hands: Burkersdorf (Turmbergschanze), Nassau (Grünschönbergschanzen), and Röthenbach (Borbergschanzen). He built them without construction plans after his sole discretion, altruistic, using only his bare hands, rake, spade, and shovel! Certainly, he himself jumped on these ski jumps, but he hasn't been a very good jumper.
During the GDR ages the ski jumping hill was named after him according to a city council decision and ski jumping activities lasted until the 1970s. The last competition was held on March 21, 1971 - the winner was Müller from Altenberg. The open fortress wall was closed as a part of restoration works on the ruin, and now only the slope in the park reminds of the former ski jump.
