The Internationales Hochsprung-Meeting is an annual high jumping competition which takes place in Eberstadt, Germany. Established as a men's competition in 1979, it quickly became an important meeting in the high jump calendar, with Jacek Wszoła setting a world record in 1980, and Zhu Jianhua improving the record further in 1984. A women's contest was added to the programme in 2002.

World record holder Javier Sotomayor remains the competition's most successful athlete, with a total of five wins achieved over seven years. Vyacheslav Voronin's and Stefan Holm's winning jumps in 2001 and 2004, respectively, were the greatest jumps in the world that season.[1][2] Kajsa Bergqvist's winning jump in 2003 was also a season's best, and remains among the highest jumps ever completed by a female athlete.[3]

Ariane Friedrich became the first German woman to win in Eberstadt in 2010 and Raúl Spank also made it the first German clean sweep that year.[4]

A total of two world records, four European records, one Asian record and seventeen national records have been set at the competition.
