Archery on Lake Bostal
3D archery is the ideal team sport for fitness and exercise – which is why it is absolutely on-trend. Not only does it help to combat stress and improve your concentration, but it is also a fun way to exercise your back muscles. As the first archery hotel in the Saarland, we have our own 3D training facility with an Olympic-sized outdoor archery range that you, as our guest, can use free of charge. You can also hire any equipment from us, so do not hesitate to ask. We will happily arrange courses for beginners and more advanced players (one-to-one and group coaching) with certified instructors from the Bogensportschule Saar school of archery; on enquiry.
Important information: Our archery facility is from
September 17 to September 24, 2023 exclusively reserved. Thank you for your understanding.

For active archers
VICTOR'S SEEHOTEL WEINGÄRTNER is your perfect training camp. Either by yourself or with the whole club. We offer the perfect preparation for competitions and professional training.
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 based on the latest findings in competitive sports," 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.
Our archery range
We have our own 3D training range and an Olympic archery field (FITA/WA) with 5 targets at up to 70 metres. And you can use our drying room for your equipment as well as for wet clothing and shoes. Our range faces the north so you have the sun on your back, with a piece of woodland next to it to shelter you from side winds from the west, so you have the perfect training conditions. It was officially opened in July 2018 by Lisa Unruh and Florian Kahllund, Germany's archery dream team.

Our partner David Kossmann runs two 3D courses in the local area. Both offer plenty of fun and are a great way of enjoying being outdoors – but also offer the perfect conditions for competition training because they comply with WA and IFAA standards.
It's just a 10-minute drive to the Schaumberger Bogensportparcours, one of the loveliest and most elaborate archery ranges in Germany. It has over 130 3D targets grouped into exciting "hunting scenes" spread over 33 stations around the Schaumberg, the "Saarländers' own mountain", as the popular recreation location is affectionately called. Thanks to elaborately designed nature trails, the 3D course is also delightful for walking in any weather. Free parking, public toilets and a beer garden ("Schaumbergalm"), plus a lookout platform on the summit, are further attractions.
Two towns along is the Biberburg course. The original forest course with 30 stations and over 100 figures is located along a premium hiking trail – great for nature lovers. Quiet and secluded, it is perfect for relaxing and for focused training. An attractive new discipline was only recently added to the facility: field archery with a total of 12 stations.
