Bärleinsparcours 3D Archery Course

The Bärleinsparcours 3D Archery Course was opened by Jürgen Freudenberger in 2010 and can really be seen after many years of continuous development. This great forest and meadow archery course has everything the heart of a traditional archer desires. The well maintained 3D course is located at the Quelläckern of Steinbach in Lower Franconia. Far from the hustle and bustle, every shooter finds his own inner peace and serenity.

Terrain and Targets

Due to the very well-developed terrain, which is also well-accessible for people with physical disabilities, the 16 targets in the forest and the 17 targets on the lawn with a total of over 110 3D animal targets can easily be shot at by anyone. The shooting distances are between ten and 50 meters.

Equipment and Prices

In addition, the Bärleinsparcours 3D Archery Course has a generous shooting range with shooting distances up to 40 meters. As a guest you get everything from Velociraptor to bison to very stylishly posed groups of animals such as deer and black vulture, all of which you would expect from a successful course visit.

​Bow Rental and Events

However, the offer is not limited to the possibility of daily shooting: After contacting anyone interested can get bow equipment for rent; Jürgen Freudenberger also offers the corresponding introductory course at a reasonable price. Especially for group outings, but also company events, birthdays in the open air (and not only for children) or events of all kinds, the course with clean and well-maintained resting place is ideal. Whether beginner, advanced or even professional: Here everyone gets their money’s worth.
More information on the rental, event and course offerings can be found on the website of the course.

A small paradise surrounded by nature, well maintained and absolutely worth seeing – that’s the best way to describe the Bärleinsparcours 3D Archery Course. It impresses with many aspects that make the experienced archers heart beat faster.
