History:

Schirnrod is a village belonging to Sachsenbrunn, which is located in the eastern part of Hildburghausen district in Thuringia. Within the course of NAW initiative in former eastern Germany (national re-construction works), the members of sports club BSG Traktor, supported by voluntary workers of the general public, constructed the new ski jumping hill at Mühlberg in summer 1953, with the objective to encourage winter sports affine youngsters in upper Werra valley. The profile was planned by Hans Renner from Zella-Mehlis according to latest standards of that time.
Bright winter weather was on when the hill was inaugurated in front of 2,000 spectators on January 13, 1954. It then served BSG as a well-used winter sports facilitiy for many years, with the youth district championships being a highlight in 1960's.
However, over the years the wooden inrun tower dilapidated and finally collapsed in 1965. It was tried to conserve the hill and continue operation at a smaller size by an earth fill, but the end of ski jumping activities at Schirnrod-Sachsenbrunn was unstoppable.
