Archery in the village of Kirchberg in Tyrol
Three archery clubs, three archery courses and an archery shop – Kirchberg in Tyrol was destined to enjoy the title of 'archery village'; the town lives and breathes the sport. Archery has really come on in Kirchberg in the last few years. The clubs - Bogensportverein Lakota at the Filzerhof, Bogensportverein Kirchberg in Bockern and Bogensportverein Avalon in Aschau have three top-notch archery courses. Events, company events and archery for visitors are also held at all the courses. Georg Baumann and his shop 'Bogensport Gigl' supplies everyone with the requisite equipment. With this range on offer, Kirchberg leads the way in Tirol and archery is its U.S.P. This is why the local tourist office and the three archery clubs have decided to market Kirchberg more prominently as an archery village. It has already developed its own advertising range
The new summer course opened with the "KitzAlps 3D BowHunting" tournament. The course is located at around 1150 metres altitude and enjoys a dreamy view to Brixental, Spertental and Großachental. The tepee area which has a shooting range is the start and finish point of the course and is close to the car park areas. The wonderful panorama and a cold drink at Alpengasthof Filzerhof complete a perfect summer's day for archery enthusiasts.
