History:

Already in 1911 the wintersports club in Thuringian Mengersgereuth-Hämmern was founded. In the ages of GDR ski jumping and Nordic combined was very popular there and there were two ski jumping facilities: at Strohberg at the northern border of the town were the three training jumps and in Augustenthal the former "Schanze der Freundschaft", which was once one of the largest hills of GDR.
The "Schanze der Freundschaft" was originally drafted as a 90 meter hill and inaugurated on February 17, 1952, with the whole elite of GDR ski jumpers participating, including national champions Werner Lesser II and Franz Knappe. The competition in 1954 was even attended by roughly 20,000 spectators at the hill. Olympic champion Helmut Recknagel set up a hill record of 72 meters in 1958, which was only surpassed by half a meter 20 years later. In the end the hill record was 74.5 meters.
