Our Archery Courses
In the Bogenregion Mainfranken/Spessart/Odenwald there are seven 3D archery courses that inspire archers from near and far and offer the ideal conditions for practicing our great sport in nature. The archery courses in our region are all very close to each other and are therefore ideal for club outings, holidays with a bow and for organizing club championships in 3D archery.
You can explore all 3D courses in the Bogenregion Mainfranken/Spessart/Odenwald within one week and expand your experience around shooting in the terrain. In addition, you can simply get in touch with other archers on the courses and exchange ideas.
The Archery Courses of our Region are special!
The courses of the Bogenregion are located in a very scenic area in the border triangle of Bavaria, Hesse and Baden-Wuerttemberg.
