Witness to the past near Aigen-Schlägl

The Schwedenschanze of Oberhaag is located northeast of Aigen-Schlägl and protected against incursions by the Hussites, Swedes and the Turks. Like many late medieval protective ramparts, this complex, after its expansion in the Thirty Years' War, received its now valid name. Near the Haagerhof leads a whipping way through the Schanzanlage. 1469, this late medieval Schanzanlage was built in the course of Bohemian-Austrian border feuds. In 1610 the area around Aigen-Schlägl suffered from the looting of the imperial troops. In order to become their master, there was a land contingent, with Aigen 24 men. then they threw on the border hills, whose largest was the plant on Oberhaag.
In 1618 and 1628, during the 2nd Peasant War, the ski jump was repaired and reoccupied.
Excavations brought this defensive system to light. It reaches in some places still a height of 3.5 meters. There was room for up to 4,000 men. The ski jumping facilities comprised four subareas. Three of these defense areas, the Große Schanze, the Sternschanze and the Wall-Graben-System, are located in Oberhaag.

Only in summer are traces of this Schanzanlage to be seen.
