History:

The Johannes-Neuber-Schanze in the Silbermannstadt Frauenstein was inaugurated in 1924 and used for ski jumping until mid 1970’s.
In the beginning it was called Burgschanze, or also Parkschanze, since the wooden and later even adjustable inrun structure was situated inside the fortress ruin. The inrun track went through the open fortress walls and then the 36 degrees step landing hill followed in the park. This ski jumping hill was built by local Hans Neubert, who was a skiing instructor at the 1920 founded ski club of Frauenstein. Inspired of ski jumping by seasonal jobs in Switzerland, he built the ski jumping hill in his hometwon.
Hans Neuber survived World War I as a casualty and was considered a nature lover with technical, but also artistic skills, such as painting. The reclusively living maverick and ski jumping hill constructor died 1968 in the Silbermannstadt and left behind the ski jumping hills which he built by his own hands: Burkersdorf (Turmbergschanze), Nassau (Grünschönbergschanzen) and Röthenbach (Borbergschanzen). He built them without construction plans after his sole discretion, altruistic, using only his bare hands, rake, spade and shovel! Certainly he himself jumped on these ski jumps, but he hasn't been a very good jumper.
During GDR ages the ski jumping hill was named after him according to a city council decision and ski jumping activites lasted until 1970's. The open fortress wall was closed as a part of restoration works on the ruin, and now only the slope in the park reminds of the former ski jump.
