History:

Already in 1951, when the Ski-Klub Wunderthausen was founded, considered building a ski jumping hill, which was supposed to be completed until 1953. The actual plan did not work out, due to the fact that the calculated costs for that, 9,000 German Marks, were too expensive. This was also caused by the denial of financial support by sports associations and the local government.
A different kind of support finally came from the community, who donated wood, but just in case the club would take care of all other measures. With this compromise, the project was completed very quickly and so the hill was inaugurated on December 13th 1953. To thank Leonhard and Ida Homrighausen, who gave one of their grounds to the club, the hill was called "Leon-Ida-Schanze".
In 1967, a reconstruction of the hill became necessary, because a district road was supposed to be build. So, the inrun tower had to be turned a bit, in order to gain some space for a proper outrun. This advice, as well as changing the hill profile, was given by the ski jumping hill consultant of the West German Ski Association and architect Franz Baier.
This time, the club received financial support from two stakeholders: The district of Wittgenstein gave 1500 German Marks and the community Wunderthausen another 1000, next to new wood for the construction. So, this construction could be completed at the end of 1969. At the Nordic district championships that winter, the hill was not only inaugurated, but named "Herrenbergschanze".
Until the 7th of March 1993, the day of the final competition, the hill was frequently used in the winters. Due to the poor condition of the inrun tower, it was eventually destroyed in 2004.
