History:

Tanne was already early a ski jumping stronghold in Harz mountains. Already in 1924 Ski-Club Tanne was founded and on 1926-12-26 the first ski jumping hill, a K60, was inaugurated. It was located at the western slope of Kapitelberg. It had been used for ski jumping until end of 1930's, activities ended around 1940.
After the end of World War II the ski club was re-founded and in 1949 the construction of a 70 meter hill at the north-western slope of Kapitelberg started. The new facility was inaugurated in 1950 and named “Schanze des Friedens“ (ski jump of peace). It was the largest natural ski jump of Saxony Anhalt at that time.
Directly besides K70 a K40 hill was built in 1955. Both hills got a plastic covering in 1958. In the same year the winter sports festival of Magdeburg district was held on the hills. From 1960 onwards the ski jumping facility was called “Harzlandschanze“.
After the NVA set up a shooting range at the location of the hills in 1962-63, they were part of a military area and had to be torn down by 1964. Even in the peak times of ski jumping the hills were hardly used, since they were very steep. Ski jumpers even called them “bone smasher hills“. Today only the relicts of the foundations of the inrun tower (photo from 1960) and the judges tower are visible.
