History:

Already at the turn of the century the first ski jumping hill was constructed at Geisingberg (823 m), which is between the two towns Altenberg and Geising. Very interesting is that the first Saxonian championships took place there in 1908. With the development of the fascination of the people for skiing, especially in the years after 1918, many ski clubs were established into the Ski Federation of Saxony and built new jumping hills or enlarged the existing ones, just like the Geisingbergschanze.
The natural jumping hill at the north-east slope of the hill was converted into large hill a wooden inrun tower at about 1930 and the name was changed into “Sachsenschanze”. In 1937 the German championships took place there, watched by 40,000 spectators the best German jumpers of that period took place. For the German Military Championships in 1941 a SS-constructing-team renewed the jump again. Again many visitors were coming, because Sepp Bradl (fist jumper over 100 m) and Rudi Gehring (world record holder with 118 m) were participating, too. The longest jump on the Sachsenschanze was made by Hans Marr with 72 m, who later fell during the war.
After 1945 the facility was called “Schanze des Friedens” and further championships of Saxony, the region and as a climax of the GDR in 1958 were hosted by the jump. The last competition was in 1960 a final test before the Olympic Games at Squaw Valley, but it had to be cancelled after the practise round because of too strong winds. In summer 1962 the dilapidated inrun tower was bombed and the jump had never been set up again.

Es wäre schön, wenn man den Namen des Schanzenerbauers nachlesen könnte? Rund um Frauenstein hat Johannes Neubert viele Schanzen gebaut, evtl. auch die Sachsenschanze?

Mit dem Zug aus Dresden kamen Hunderte und der Marsch zum Geisingberg von Altenberg über die Wiesen und um den Geisingberg herum zur Sachsenschanze,um den Deutschen Meisterschaften 1958 beizuwohnen, war eine wahre Völkerwanderung. Das Springen wurde mehrfach wegen Schneefall unterbrochen, war für mich ein Riesenerlebnis. Nach der Demontage des Anlaufturmes sind wir in den 60 iger Jahren oft den Schanzenauslauf runtergefahren, weil wir den alpinen Skisport auf der Sachenabfahrt übten.
