History:

The Habichtswald in the area of the 615-meter high "Hohen Gras" on the Kassel Wilhelmshöhe was once a popular winter sports area. The first ski jump there was built in 1928 at the old "Herbsthäuschen" (autumn house). Jumps of up to 26 meters were achieved there.
The Max-Höfer-Schanze, named after a jumper from KSV Hessen, was built in 1935 on the 565 m high Ziegenkopf. The hill allowed jumps of up to 40 meters, but became dilapidated after World War II. To start a reconstruction, American soldiers helped to blew up the 12-meter high inrun tower in 1956. In February 1958, the new ski jumping hill was inaugurated with a big competition in front of 5000 spectators. The wooden hill was then used until around 1972 and was finally torn down in 1980.
