Already in 1911 on Schönjungferngrund-Schanze in Oberwiesenthal the German Championships were won with a distance of 12 meters.
The old Fichtelbergschanze with large wooden inrun tower was inaugurated in 1938 after two years of construction time. Until 1945 it was called “Martin-Mutschmann-Schanze” and was one of the most modern jumps in Germany. Jumps were even about 80 meters long, the last hill record was held by J. Raska (CSSR) in 1970 with 85 meters.
After the destruction a complete new Fichtelbergschanze with steel inrun tower and K90-profile was created from 1972 to 74.
In 1991, the normal hill was again converted and equipped with a glass inrun and plastic covering. At his final goodbye-competition on his home ski jumping hill Jens Weißflog flew a new hill record of 102 meters in 1996 in front of more than 15,000 spectators.
From 2000 to 2002 the profile of the jump was completely reconstructed with a new K-Point of 95 meters.
By the way, the youth ski jumps K50 and K40 got so-called “Freitag” inrun towers in 1983/84, named after the technical constructer. Therewith it was possible to change hydraulically the inrun angle in 4 minutes from 31 to 39 degrees. Several youth hills in the GDR got this system. But the very complicated construction wasn’t successful after the introduction of the Happle seat in the 90’s.
For the youngest ski jumpers at Oberwiesenthal, on October 3, 2004 the new K9 Mini-Mattenschanze was opened.
After the general condition of Fichtelbergschanze had become worse over the past years, in late 2011 the planning of a around 1.8m Euro expensive modernization of the K95 ski jump has started. Mainly a new inrun track will be installed and floodlights be set up. With its biomechanical platform, a measuring facility for the forces during take-off, the ski jump is an important part of the Olympic center Oberwiesenthal. The construction works started in spring 2013 and for the re-opening of HS 106 a summer Grand Prix of Nordic Combined was hosted in August 2013.
To improve the infrastructure at the hill, the old chair lift was demolished in 2016 and replaced by the so-called "Mountain Climber". This complex and expensive system caused several bad news from Oberwiesenthal, due to several technical issues and its capacity, which used to be too low. In addition to that, it was difficult to access the hill due to its location in the middle of the Alpine skiing resort. This issue was solved by building a tunnel, which was opened in December 2019. Thanks to that, everyone has a safe and sound access, especially the emergency vehicles, which are required for international competitions.
Even before that, the youth hills were completely renovated, so the Olympic training center Oberwiesenthal is in good shape. In addition to that, a new container building was built behind the outrun, which offers teams some capacities. And so, there were a couple of historic events in Germany's highest located town: At the tenth anniversary of the Nordic Combined Summer Grand Prix in town in 2019, the first ever Nordic Combined mixed team took place. Memorable were also the FIS Nordic Junior World Ski Championships in 2020, which were the last big event before of the Corona pandemic, which was held without restrictions but with spectators. There, the mixed team competition also had his debut in this special event.
