History:

Already in 1922 the Lindenbergschanze in Ilmenau in Thuringia existed. The ski jump was used by the later established ski club Sparta and competitions were held until the beginning of World War II. Some years after the war, the Sportgemeinschaft Empor Ilmenau was founded and rebuilt the ski jump in 1952. The K-Point at that time was at 45 meters, at the same time the smaller junior hill was built.
In 1958, the ski jumps were covered with plastic mattings. Highlight and a tradition of the club were the annual Christmas competitions. The last competition on the large Lindenbergschanze was held in 1968, and in the mid-1970s the dilapidated ski jump was removed.
In 1984, the junior hill was enlarged and re-covered with plastic mattings. In 1986, even a mini hill was added. With the help of many voluntary workers and parents, the ski jumps were brought up to competition standards. Another conversion of the K20 with the installation of a ceramic inrun track and new plastic mats on the landing hill was carried out by WSV Ilmenau in 1991. From spring 1992 onwards, annual competitions were held for the "winter-closure". This event was finally held on 2001/04/28, after that Lindenberg-Schanze had to be closed due to security reasons. Meanwhile, the hill is being used for Mountainbike downhill races.

Als wir 1946 als Niederschlesienflüchtlinge nach Ilmenau kamen, war so ein Schanzenspringen eine Attraktion. Wenn der erste DDR-Skisprungmeister Franz Knappe oder der Ortsmatador Hans-Günter Köchert angekündigt wurde und sprang ging ein Raunen durch die Menge. Mein Bruder Kurt Hoffmann erbaute als Zimmermann die Schanze mit.

Das letzte Springen auf der K 20 fand im April 2001 auf Matten statt. Da sich meine Kumpels freundlicherweise alle schmissen, konnte ich im Alter von 43 Jahren mit 2 gestandenen Sprüngen von 17 m die offene Klasse gewinnen - schade, dass es die Schanze nicht mehr gibt!

Prof. Dipl.Ing

Den Neubau der Schanze 1952 habe ich als Student der Technischen Hochschule Dresden, Fakultät für Bauwesen in den Semesterferien in Ilmenau projektiert. Der Anlaufturm und der obere Teil des Aufsprunghanges waren zimmermannsmäßig abgebundene Konstruktionen, die von der Firma Glaser aus Ilmenau errichtet wurden. Ich bin leider nicht mehr im Besitz einer zeichnerischer Unterlage und würde mich freuen, wenn irgendwo eine Planunterlage auftauchen würde. Diese Semesterarbeit hat mir viel Spaß gemacht, zumal die Konstruktion von meinen Arbeitskollegen errichtet wurde. Ich habe 1945 bis 1947 den Beruf eines Zimmermanns in der Firma Glaser erlernt.
