The hill has undergone two renovations in 1978 and 2007. Due to a required upgrade of the jump to the advanced technical standards of the International Skiing Federation (FIS), the construction of an entirely new ski jump was inevitable. Among projects by Zaha Hadid Architects, Behnisch Architects and others, an international architectural competition in autumn 2006 led to the decision to erect a cantilevering structure as the new landmark of ski sports, designed by terrain:loenhart&mayr. Start of the construction site at April, 26th 2007. Grand opening ceremony at the Continental Cup / Four Hills Tournament on New Year's Day 2008. The tower offers a panoramic view of the surrounding valley of Garmisch-Partenkirchen.
