Collenberg 3D Archery Course

The 3D Archery Course of Collenberg was opened in 2007 and enjoys great popularity with archers from the region, all over Germany and even from other European countries.

It is operated by the archery department of KKSV Fechenbach e.V., the local shooting club in Collenberg, and is located on a site directly at the shooting clubhouse in Collenbergs district Fechenbach.

The course terrain and the landscape

The course is laid out along 4,5 km long circuit in the beautiful nature along the Fechenbach and the two slopes of the Fechenbach valley. The course area covers an area of 25 hectares. The route leads you from the clubhouse starting at the stream along, then across the orchard meadows, past blackberry hedges and through small groves and finally over the wooded western slope of Fechenberg back to the clubhouse. The very varied terrain and the naturalness of the area make the tour on the Bogenparcours Collenberg a great experience for the whole family.

The Facilities of the Course

At the 33 stations, the Collenberg archery course with its more than 120 3D animals offers numerous interesting and challenging shots. Up- and donwhill shots, shots through a small shooting window, shots at “flying” targets or from a shooting stand are just a few of the special features that await you in Collenberg. During planning and implementation of each station, the operators attach great importance to the fact that there are natural and realistic 3D animal groups of at least two to three animals and not just one individual 3D animal.

In addition, the operators change the course regularly in four to eight-week intervals. So you can look forward to any innovation on (almost) every visit to Collenberg. Especially those frequent changes and the lush equipment of the stations with 3D animal groups makes this 3D course so special and so popular with many archers.

Both beginners, advanced and “professionals” get their money’s worth on the course. Each station is equipped not only with three different launching sticks (red for visors, blue for instinctive shooters, white for children), but in addition to some tricky shots always has a very “feasible” shot for everyone. Because most of the targets are very arrow-friendly, the search for arrows or the broken arrow is usually very limited even for beginners.

Your equipment

If you want to visit and shoot at the Collenberg 3D Archery Course, you need to have your own archery equipment or at least bring one with you, as there is no bow rental on site. However, bow rental is offered at a local archery shop.

On the course all kinds of bows are allowed, that means in addition to traditional bows and technical recurve bows also compound bows. There is no general draft limit, but compound bows are only allowed up to a 60 lb draw weight. There is no limit to the arrow speed.

To ensure that the archery course remains “safe” to walk in all weather conditions and all seasons, critical areas or paths along slopes have been fitted with steps or wooden beams. Sturdy footwear, such as hiking boots, is strongly recommended.

In addition, it is recommended – especially in the summer months – to always take something to drink with you. An on-site catering at the local clubhouse does not exist or only on Sunday mornings.

Registration for course use

The registration and payment is made on site by each shooter independently and based on trust at the existing registration box. The box is located directly at the clubhouse next to the front door and contains various information brochures of all kinds, as well as enough registration forms and the shooting book. The operators trust in the registration for the honesty of each visitor. However, regular controls are also carried out to ensure that trust is not abused. The registration process is as follows: Each guest completes a registration form and puts this together with the fee in cash into an existing envelope. The envelope is then inserted into the letter slot in the registration box. Afterwards, the shooter enters the shooting book (and at the end of the round again). Now you can start shooting.

​What else to expect?

First of all, you can warm-up at the existing and generously sized shooting range at the clubhouse after your arrival and before your walk on the course. There are multiple targets at distances of 10-40 meters and numerous 3D targets ready for you.
Then it goes into the course. The start is directly at the Schützenhaus along the stream. Station 1 is located about 100 meters behind the clubhouse. The circular route through the archery course is marked with red arrows and on the back of the terms of use you will find a map for a rough orientation.

It takes two to five hours to complete a lap on the archery course. It all depends on how fast you walk, how many people you’re on the road and how fast you shoot. A good condition is an advantage, because you have to overcome twice about 50-80m difference in height during the course over several stations.

To pause and linger in nature, the numerous seats available on the course invite. At three points on the archery course (at station 7, station 13 and after station 16), there is even a seating area with a table and benches integrated so that you can eat your brought-in meal there. You can also go back to station 16 on the land consolidation route back to the clubhouse and eat there or take a break.

Prices and Opening Hours

The course fee is a daily fee, what means that you are allowed to do as many rounds on the course as you want during the day. The fee always includes the use of the shooting range, where you can then improve your shooting technique after the course or in the break or you can train shooting on different distances.

Adults (over 18 years) pay 12, – EUR per day, children and youths (12 to 17 years) pay 5, – EUR and children under 12 accompanied by a paying adult are free of charge. There is also a 20 day pass available. For more information on prices, can you visit the website of the Bogenparcours Collenberg.
