Ski-Jumping hill area
The ski jumping complex is located close to the town of Oberwiesenthal and is an integral part of the alpine ski resort on the Fichtelberg mountain. The training venue features 7 ski jumping hills that can be used year-round, offering the ideal basis for getting used to larger ski jumping hills. Thanks to the snow-making facilities at the site, the hill can usually be used from mid- to late November and into April.
To ensure a high-quality training experience, a lift and a functional building with changing rooms and a team room are available.
The jumps to decide the winners of the Nordic Combined and Ski Jumping disciplines in the FIS Nordic Junior and U23 Cross-Country World Ski Championships took place on the Fichtelbergschanze from 28 February to 8 March 2020.
All jumping hills in the complex can be maintained with artificial snow.
The heart of the facility is the K95 “Fichtelbergschanze".
In addition, warming rooms are available in the jump tower.

"I’m a big fan of the training facilities here in Oberwiesenthal. Everything you need is very close by, minimising the amount of time you have to spend on tedious travel to get to your training. The state-of-the-art winter sports training facilities are also of a very high standard. I enjoyed training here when I was at school and I appreciate it to this day."
Ski-Jumping hills of size K15, K26, K51 and K64 are available for methodical training.
The children’s Ski-Jumping hills include sizes K4 and K8.
"In the course of the World Junior Championships, the training facilities, which had already been well developed in the past, were further improved. Winter sports and Ski Jumping have long been part of tradition around the Fichtelberg region!"
Matting is available on all jumping hills in the complex.
The first Ski Jumping hill in Oberwiesenthal went by the name of Schönjungfernschanze. Athletes jumped up to 12 metres from it. The Fichtelbergschanze jumping hill opened in 1938 and was renovated in 1974 to create the Fichtelbergschanze we know today.
