History:

Bermuthshain is a small village belonging to Grebenhain in Vogelsberg area in Hesse. Already in 1950's there had been a small ski jump, which was built by ski jumping enthusiastic kids at "Höllerich" (around 570 m a.s.l.). TSV Grebenhain then initiated the construction of a larger ski jumping hill in 1960's and was supported by the Hessian Ski Association. Planning and construction were given to an architect and a civil engineer from Friedberg resp. Kahl am Main. American pioneer soldiers helped to carry out the soil works with their machines. The hill had a 17.5 meter high inrun tower and the inrun length was around 40 meters. For summer usage it was equipped Elasdur plastic covering. The ski jumping hill was inaugurated in September 1970 as only the second hill in Hesse with plastic mattings and named after the first skiing pioneer on Vogelsberg - Wilhelm Dillemuth.
However, ski jumping activities lasted only around 10 years, during which mainly district championships and regional competitions had been organized. Bad snow conditions during winters and declining condition of the mattings lead to the closure of the ski jumpng hill. The structure dilapidated and was about to be demolished. However, as one of the last wood-made ski jumping hills in Germany, the structure was declared as a protected monument in 2003. Now there is a viewing platform at the site of the former take-off, which offers a wonderful view on Bermuthshain and the Vogelsberg nature park.

Mittlerweile ist am ehemaligen Schanzentisch eine Aussichtsplattform entstanden. Bei schönem Wetter hat man einen tollen Blick über den Vogelsberg bis hin zur Rhön. Nur zu empfehlen!

Unterhalb der Schanze richtete die Reservistenkameradschschaft Neustadt alljährlich ein Sommerbiwak aus.
Das die Schanze mal im Rahmen einer dienstlichen Veranstaltung gesprengt werden sollte, oder das Kameraden die Schanze nachts mit einer Bratpfanne hinunterfuhren, halte ich aber eher für eine Legende.

Hess. Schülermeisterschaften

Bin dort noch Anfang der 80er bei den hessischen Schülermeisterschaften gesprungen. War schon skurill das Teil.

Bermuthshain

Diese alte Holzschanze war Ziel vieler Radtouren, als ich noch dort in der Nähe wohnte. Von der Bundesstrasse Richtung Lauterbach ist sie auch gut zu sehen. Hab es leider nie fotografiert.
