History:

In 1950 the strenuous skiers of Hohburg, a town in Muldental near Wurzen, had the idea to construct a ski jumping hill on the northern slope of Löbenberg (240 m). Supported by the former district administrator of Grimma they started there idealistic work with hoe and shovel. After the inrun tower was completed in autumn 1952, the up-coming winter was expected to come soon. More than 3000 spectators then travelled to the opening of the new jumping hill on January 11, 1953, which has organized as districtal winter sports championships. Before this event the new-cons­truc­ted hill was inaugurated as “Ernst Thälmann Schanze”. Later a judge’s tower was set up and in 1950’s and 60’s many championships of the districts Wurzen, Grimma, Delitzsch and Eilenburg were organized. After four winters with only few snow when no ski jumping competitions could be organized, the last competition was held in 1970 with a small number of participants. Afterwards the jumping hill was no more used and finally dismantled in 1975.
