  • 1936 Olympic Winter Games was held in this city town. Nice to be able to inspect jumps and the Olympic Stadium. It was not so great demands at the time. A sight that really can be recommended.

  • It's really interesting, if you know the station of the four hills tournament from the television and then live looks. Is it really the same? The stadium was built for the Olympic Games in 1936 and it they so out, as time would be stopped. What a pity. The system could be modernized something where you can only see that if everything is empty. Impressive the Hill and how small that yet is discontinued after the jump. Otherwise, there are here but without not much to see and discover. If you have some extra time, continue to run to the Gorge (it is open all year round).

  • Stumbled upon this heading for a hike and got lucky that someone was doing ski-jump practices. Neat to see the history and that it's still in use.
