History:

In the forefront of 1936 Winter Olympics in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, also in Lindenau in Saxony two ski jumping hills were built with K-Points of approx. 35 and 9 meters in 1932. They had been used until 1939 and were then given up during World War II.
Directed by KV Schneeberg, the ski jumping hill at Rautenkranz was re-built in 1953. It had a wooden inrun tower and permitted jumps up to 40 meters. Henceforth it had been very popular with the youngsters from Lindenau, each winter there were many active ski jumpers and the hill was even used as part of school sports education.
However, it was damaged by a fire caused by unknown incendiarists on 1960-01-03. The reconstruction was done still in the same year, but due to winters with little snow, further willful damaging and wood theft, the ski jumping hill had to be finally dismantled in 1968 and the wood was re-used for the construction of a new football pitch.
