This ski jump has two nicknames, The Big Nansen and The Sleeping Giant. Built in 1936 by the city of Berlin and the National Youth Administration, it was considered the largest ski jump in that time. In 1938, the first Olympic trials were held at the Nansen Ski Jump. The jump was closed in 1988, and over the years this site fell in into the condition of disrepair. In 2015, the Nansen Ski Jump Restoration Project was started in order for visitor to view it as it once was.
