Archery parcours on the ammer-bow grounds

pürschling + laber

Our two "beginner"-courses - the ideal choice if you are shooting for the first time or have little kids with you. The courses lead through the forest on the west side of the Kolbensattel without major differences in altitude, so the footwear requirements here are not quite as high - but please note: You are outdoor! If you expect gravelled paths or even stairs, you will be disappointed :)

With a length of about 600 yards each, the courses are easy to master even for shooters with less stamina (the "Pürschling" is the "tamer" one) and even beginners rarely need more than 1-1.5 hours for the 14 targets each.

You feel fit for a short mountain hike and are equipped with mountain or trekking boots? You are not afraid of some physical activity and rough terrain? Then the "Kofel" is the right choice! 14 destinations, spread over ~400 ft of elevation difference, are waiting for you.

But be careful: the first part of the course is a quite relaxed downhill... On the ascent back, however, it is important to bring your pulse rate down to normal range before shooting - otherwise you will be facing a tough search for your lost arrows... Depending on your "mountain ability", 2 archers need about 2.5 hours for the "Kofel".

The 14 targets of the "Zahn" are located about 300 ft. elev. diff. (10-15 min.) below our station and are designed as an extension of the "Kofel". For the 28 targets of the combined tour ("Kofel" + "Zahn") you should already bring some experience and condition, as well as an appropriate time cushion (approx. 3,5h for 2 persons). Due to the duration and the limited number of our bows, we can offer you the use of "Zahn" only if customer traffic permits.

Archers with own equipment

Für Schützen mit eigener Ausrüstung ist die Kombination „Kofel“ + „Zahn“ mit insgesamt 28 Zielen vorgesehen; für die kurze Feierabendrunde könnt ihr aber auch gerne „Laber“ und/oder "Pürschling" besuchen. Oder alle vier, wenn's ein Tagesausflug sein soll ;). Bitte beachtet die Parcoursregeln und Nutzungsbedingungen. Compoundbögen und Armbrüste sind auf dem Parcours nicht gestattet. Sollte unser Verleih geschlossen sein, bitte im Parcoursbuch eintragen und die Tagesgebühr in einem Kuvert in die Kassenbox werfen.

(Bei hohem Besucheraufkommen kann es im "Laber" und/oder "Pürschling" zu Wartezeiten kommen - wir bitten hierfür um Verständnis.)


Also a longer bow vacation in our area is worthwhile, 8 further Parcours are attainable within 90 minutes by car.
