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 32 stations (30 regular stations and two special stations) with one to five 3D targets per station and a total of around 100 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 path through the course, designed as a figure eight, is approx. 4.3 km long. The walkways are paved with wood and – where necessary – steps and are very easy for everyone to walk on. Because the course largely runs on the ridge north and east of the Henneburg, there are only moderate inclines to overcome. Sturdy shoes are definitely 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 warm up on the shooting range in the moat and then continue to the beginning of the course.

In order to be able to use the “Henneburg” Stadtprozelten archery course, you must have your own archery equipment or rent it from the operator, for example.

Bow Rental & Courses

The operator of the archery course Stadtprozelten also offers archery rental (complete equipment) and archery courses (beginner courses, advanced courses and children’s courses) as well as accompanied course rounds during the course opening hours by prior arrangement.

The rent per archery equipment and day is 20,- EUR and 7,-EUR per damaged or lost arrow will be charged. For newcomers, an instruction hour in the basics of archery and safety rules (costs: 20,- EUR ) is mandatory.

Further information on the rental and course offerings can be obtained from the operator.

The course has 32 stations with around 100 3D animals.

It takes around 2.5 to 5 hours to complete the approximately 4.3 km long round of the course.

Since the course is laid out as a horizontal figure eight, after the first quarter of the course (after station 8) you can shorten to the last quarter (starting with station 20) and only shoot half a round.

The course runs through varied terrain, mainly in a high beech forest, but also leads over meadows and clearings as well as through a rustic hazel forest.

The route is designed so that the highest point is reached approximately in the middle of the course. The gradients are moderate, but average fitness is an advantage. The paths are partly paved and walking on them is made easier by steps and logs. Sturdy shoes are generally recommended.
