Ski jumps in summer

The first ski jump was built in 1922 in the Faulenbach valley in the Bad Faulenbach district of Füssen. A few years later the hill was expanded so that jumps of up to 35 m were possible. In 1939 the Allgäu ski jumping championships were held on this hill. When the large hill on Kobel was built, it faded into the background and became dilapidated.

In 1971, the Füssen ski club converted the ski jump into a K 45. 14 years later there was another renovation, in which a K 20 hill was created for the youngsters. In 2000, the association started planning a reconstruction of the ski jumping facility and a mat covering because the facility was not suitable for year-round training and competitions and no longer met the required standards.

The renovation work began in January 2004. For the 90th anniversary of the Füssen Ski Club, the new middle hill was completed as K 51 in November 2004. On September 11th, 2005 the new K 51 hill was inaugurated with a plastic jumping event. The K 20 hill was covered with plastic mattings in summer 2007.
