History:

The Hainich is a forested mountain range in western Thuringia. By the way, the constructive geographical center of the Federal Republic of Germany is just adjacent to this region.
Craula is situated at the eastern border of today’s national park - inbetween Eisenach and Bad Langensalza. A little west of the town, in the juniper heath, Hainich-Schanze was inaugurated on February 25, 1933. Not many competitions had been hosted on it, because the skiers from Craula had to face weather problems from the beginning on. Since the ski jumping hill was set up very freestanding, there had been a lot of wind influences or sunshine quickly attacked the often very small snow layers.
In 1952 the ski jumping hill was once again reconstructed and came alive with the ski jumping enthusiasm of these years, but the later use suffered the same disadvantageous conditions. It dilapidated over the years and had to be torn down in early 1960’s. Nevertheless the concrete fundaments of the old inrun tower are still visible in the largest juniper heathland of Germany.
