History:

At Rhodaer Grund in Steigerwald, a woodland in the southern part of Erfurt, a ski jumping hill was constructed by Erfurt-based architect Eng. Körner and built up with municipal support in 1938.
The inauguration of the hill was planned for January 1939, but had to be cancelled due to lack of snow in that winter. So finally it was opened by the local authority for public and youth sports on January 8, 1940. Of course all local important public persons were attending and experienced together with other spectators as German Champion Hans Marr from Oberhof jumped the longest distance of 29 meters.
There shall have been competitions until 1942, but after World War II the wooden parts of the jump became victims of the lack of combustibles in the country and a reconstruction failed due to lacking the back-up by any ski club. In 2005 a board was set up in order to remember of the former ski jumping hill.
