Questions & Answers
There are no reservations for private individuals and private groups. If you come with a group (> 10 people), we ask you to inform us in advance by email (email@example.com). If there is a large crowd, there may be waiting times. For children's birthdays and company events, please use our online form directly.
Is the course also suitable for absolute newbies?
Yes. You will receive a detailed explanation and briefing at the shooting range. In addition to our personal explanations, the most important information is posted on an information board at the entrance.
From the age of 10 you can do archery with us. If you come to archery with children, please note the supervisory relationship:
Children under 14 years:
2 children - 1 adult
Children from 14-17 years:
4 children - 1 adult
This cannot be answered in general, since it depends on many factors (group size, number of groups on the course, duration of the arrow search). With a group of 4 people, you can roughly expect the following duration:
Course 1 (20 stations) - 2 hours
Course 2 (30 stations) - 3.5 hours
Experienced shooters are of course much faster than those new to archery. Inexperienced shooters should also plan enough time for training and independent practice on the shooting range.
The footwear must be firm and closed and should have a profiled sole. When it comes to clothing, everyone has to decide for themselves what they prefer. The course is completely outdoor so clothing should be adapted to the weather. We recommend sun and insect protection in the summer months.
Light rain is not an obstacle. In bad weather (heavy rain, storm, thunderstorm, fog) there is no operation. When dusk falls, stop shooting immediately!
Please inform yourself about the current opening times on our homepage before your visit. If we are closed due to the weather, information can be found on the homepage.
