History:

Giller, which is also called Gillerberg, belongs to the Rothaar mountain range and is situated near the villate Lützel, which is now part of Hilchenbach in Siegerland. The very first ski jumping hill there was set up by Oskar Waldrich, an industrialist from Siegen, already before World War I. Around mid-1920's, the permanent Gillerbergschanze was built at Pfaffenhain with wooden inrun structure.
After World War II, when the skiing activities among the population of Siegerland rapidly gained momentum in early 1950's, also a new, larger ski jump with a metal inrun structure was constructed at Gillerberg and SV Lützel was founded. Next to the ski jump a rope tow for alpine skiing was installed in 1960's, which is still in use today, and the junior ski jump was added. When snow conditions were good, both the ski jumps and the alpine slope had been very popular, even more so since the slope was equipped with floodlights for evening skiing.
Ski jumpers of SV Lützel had been actively using the ski jumpign hills until 2003. There had even been an effort to build a plastic covered ski jump, but ultimately the ski jumping divisionwas closed and in 2012 the former hills were finally deconstructed.
