History:

Quite a few activists started building the Schanze der Jugend (Ski Jump of the youth) on their own at the beginning of the 1950's. The opening competition took place on January 24th 1952. One of the most famous participants in that competition was Hans Renner, who had a big influence on ski jumping in the former GDR. He was still active at that time and even jumped the first hill record.
More very well-known names who competed in Seligenthal were Helmut Recknagel, Werner Lesser and Harry Glass. But it was Kurt Amberg from Pappenheim (nowadays Kleinschmalkalden), who jumped the last valid hill record of 48 meters.
In the night from 31st July to 1st August 1958, the wooden inrun tower collapsed following a heavy thunderstorm. This marked the end of the short history of the ski jump. Relicts of the tower-fundaments and the take-off are still visible. Furthermore, an information board at the hiking track "Gieselsberg - Stahlberg - Tennelberg" keeps the memories of the ski jump.
The smaller hills were even equipped with plastic mattings. The take-off of the K15 is still existing as well as the fundament of the judges' tower next to the K25.
