Rieneck 3D Archery Course
The Rieneck archery course is the newest in the region and is located in the eastern Spessart. It is operated by EP-Extratouren, a non-profit educational company specializing in experiential education for young people and young adults.
The course leads along a slope near the Rieneck Castle through mixed and coniferous forests and across numerous meadows. It has 28 Stations, each with one to three targets per station. The course has a total of approx. 55 3D animals. Along the course of the course you have a wonderful view of the picturesque Sinn valley in several places. The distances at the stations are moderate with many hunting shots from the cover.
The course of the circular route, because it runs along a slope with sometimes quite steep ascents and descents, can be described as demanding and sturdy footwear is an absolute must.
