3D archery

"All to the Kill!" – This is the 3D archers' greeting before a tournament.

3D archery is an active outdoor activity where you can train your skills and muscle strength in the fresh air. Though fun is a big part of it too of course.

But if you think that this is just a leisure experience for adults, you're wrong. Children from the age of 5 are welcome to the adventure trail at Lake Störmthal and, after a competent safety briefing, can improve their team spirit as well as their marksmanship.

Out and About by Bicycle in Leipzig and the Region

Ab durch die Mitte und rein ins Grüne

Leipzig – the City of Short Distances – is waiting to be explored! And a bicycle is the perfect way to get around. How about a bike tour through the Leipzig floodplain forest, the largest contiguous forest area in Europe? Or are you more drawn to the water? Leipzig is not called Little Venice for nothing. With the Pleiße, Parthe and White Elster rivers running through it, Leipzig is a wonderful place to explore from the cycle paths along the waterways.

Leipzig city centre is also a perfect starting point for excursions into the Leipzig region! The river Elbe cycle route at Belgern promises to be an eventful trip, as does the river Mulde Bike Trail from Döbeln to Löbnitz, which can be challenging in places. The best way to explore the well-marked network of cycle paths and hiking trails is to cycle or hike without luggage.
