What is highly contagious, but completely healthy? 3D archery, the "hunt" for three-dimensional targets on an outdoor course. Completely animal and nature-friendly. With traditional wooden bows, without a sight or technical ballast, it is the perfect healthy sport. It clears the head – and above all is tremendous fun. Archery is "in". And with expert guidance is also very safe.
Which is why Victor's now works with the Bogensportschule Saar school of archery – the most renowned specialist for traditional archery in south-west Germany. Highly qualified instructors offer courses from beginner to advanced levels, private one-on-one and group lessons. As our guest, you can use the hotel's own archery range and the equipment room. In addition, you will find two large 3D ranges in close proximity, one of which is the Schaumberg-Parcours, opened in July 2018, with 33 shooting stations, just 10 minutes away from our hotel.
We offer you the perfect archery experience in no fewer than four ways:
- as a leisure experience for the whole family
- as an special offer
- as training for traditional (competitive) archery
- as coaching for companies (the absolute insider tip amongst the incentive events)
3D archery is tremendous fun for all ages We suggest that beginners book an instructor, as they will then learn the correct technique. This will help them to experience success and make sure they are safe from the start.

Our head trainer, David Kossmann, holds the highest licence currently awarded by the German Archery Association DFBV, and is himself a successful competitive archer.
Other DFBV instructors are available as well as David Kossmann. "We optimise our participants' shooting technique to the latest competitive sports findings," explains David Kossmann. And not only do the instructors work on an archer's intuitive style, but they can also help to improve traditional target techniques such as gap shooting, string walking and so on. David Kossmann is also much in demand as a bow maker (DK Bow-Factory), and knows all the tricks for the best way to set up your equipment.
The hotel's own archery range offers a 3D training parcours and a olympic parcours (FITA/WA) with 5 targets, at a maximum distance of 70 metres.
The Biberburg Course is the perfect competition training site with 30 stations (DFBV and IFAA-compliant). In July 2018, the Schaumberg-Parcours opened to the public. With its 33 targets it is conveniently located in close proximity to the hotel, just 10 minutes away.

Wellness sport with the "wow!" effect
Our instructors will teach you the technique of intuitive archery. You will learn outdoors, on traditional wooden bows without a sight. You'll learn to guide the arrow to the target using your feeling and all the force of your concentration. And you'll be amazed how quickly you manage to do it. Depending on what you want, we can focus on leisure and fun, dealing with stress, preventing burnout, mental training or team-building.
Team-building: Hunting for points together
Shooting bows and arrows together outdoors is a fabulous experience for everyone. It provides positive shared experiences, and strengthens motivation and a team spirit. The technique of intuitive archery allows you to experience the strength of your physical feeling – you'll be amazed at what you can do
Mental training: Feel your own potential
Stand firm, focus, don't overtighten the bow, release, feel the relaxation, and hold. All this is taught and learnt with complete ease. "Intuitive archery enables us to make changes tangible, and to root them permanently," explains psychologist Madeleine Kunz. "The active physical movement, combined with mental training and psychological approaches, leads to permanent change. The focus is on concentration, inner peace, strength and self-perception."
Operational health management (BGM): The bow as a weapon to fight stress
To find peace, recharge your batteries. With Victor's Archery Coaching, you're doing something specific to benefit the health and well-being of your staff. "Intuitive archery is the perfect way to prevent burnout," promises Wolfgang Kossmann, naturopath and certified archery therapist. "As a healthy sport practised with qualified guidance, archery is actively relaxing and balancing. It is good for the back, and boosts your stress resistance and mental performance."
Head instructor David Kossmann: "Archery is a gentle prevention sport that helps to develop the muscles in your back with complete ease. This improves your posture, and is excellent for slipped discs. Focusing between near and far prevents the eyes from ageing prematurely – an absolute boon for anyone who works at a computer monitor. And being in the great outdoors brings pure relaxation. This makes this sport the perfect balance for sedentary office activities in particular."
Whatever you are planning, Victor's Archery Coaching is always a good choice. For instance, a few hours during conferences and seminars can really work wonders. Try it and see!
