In the beginning, Hinterzarten was actually called "Hinter der Straß" (behind the street), and Breitnau to the north was "Vor der Straß" (in front of the street). Between 1708 and 1750 the village's name changed to Hinterzarten, partly because of a small river in the area called Zartenbach.By 1755 the first postal road to Hinterzarten was built through the Höllental; and in 1887 a railway stretch for tourists was opened.In 1964 Hinterzarten officially became a "climatic healing resort" (German: Heilklimatischer Kurort).Ski jumping in HinterzartenIn 1923, after the foundation of the Ski Club Hinterzarten, the Kirchwaldschanze ski jump was built ; and in 1924 the Adlerschanze ski-jump was built.
