Stadtprozelten 3D Archery Course

The Stadtprozelten archery course is the newest course in our region and is located north of the very well-preserved castle ruins of the “Henneburg” in the Lower Franconian town of Stadtprozelten.

The course leads from the parking lot at the Henneburg through beech forest, over extensive meadows and forest clearings, and in the last part through a rustic hazel forest. It has 31 stations with one to four 3D targets per station and a total of around 90 3D animals. The course also has a moving target.

The shooting distances at the stations can be described as moderate to sporty. Overall, the course covers all distance ranges with targetdistances of 10-50 meters and thus offers the best conditions for both beginners and advanced archers.

Before starting the course, you can first shoot yourself in and warm up on the wonderful shooting range in the historic moat of the Henneburg castle.

The circular route of approx. 4-4.5 km in length, laid out as a horizontal figure eight, is very easy to walk on for everyone. Because the course mostly runs on the ridge north of the Henneburg, there are hardly any steep inclines to overcome. Only at the beginning and around the middle of the course is there a slightly larger incline to be mastered over a few stations. However, sturdy shoes are recommended.

Registration and Course Use

Registration for the course takes place at a small registration hut, which is located at the official entrance gate of the castle – the so-called donkey gate – in the east of the castle. Registration forms are available there, which after filling out must be thrown into a slot along with the course fee. Registration is based on trust. Each shooter must also write in a shooting book and resign after leaving the course. Once you have registered, you can take the panorama path to the shooting range in the castle moat and the start of the course.

In order to be able to use the “Henneburg” Stadtprozelten archery course, you must have your own archery equipment or at least bring it with you, as there is no rental of bows on site.

What else can you expect?

As part of the course, there will also be a small restaurant with beer garden directly on the Henneburg from 2022, which will be maintained by the course operator.

From there you have a wonderful view over the Main valley. Henneburg, built in the 12th century, is one of the most beautiful castle ruins in Germany today. In the future there will also be sightseeing tours and guided tours of the castle.
