A good start is to walk to the outlet to get an overview of the whole area.
You can decide to walk around the outrun oft he large hill and then to climb up the small path. When you pass the TV box also the main building will appear.
You can take then the direct route up to that path and pass through a small monument in honor of Sepp Bradl.
Bradl was a pioneer of ski jumping. He will always be in the memories of the ski jumping universe, because he was the first guy who jumped more than 100 metres on skis. His jump on the 26th of March 1936 on 101.5 meters will stay in our minds forever. Bradl also became the first overall winner of the ski jumping hill tournament and wrote histroy with that. His career ended in 1958.
The ski jump which looks tiny from distance is actually massive. The take-off which means the end of the inrun. A huge blue „B“ and „Bischofshofen“ in blue letters are painted on the jump.
