On Saturday August 28th, 2022, we spent our afternoon at the shooting range of Mittenwald, Bavaria, Germany. Every kilometer of our journey from Tyrol to our destination was made easier by the beauty of the Alps.

BSV Mittenwald is the highest shooting range in Germany, with an altitude of 1,200 m above sea level. Upon arrival, you will be struck by the beauty of the surroundings which will be your background while shooting Trap. At BSV Mittenwald, one can not only shoot Universal Trap, but pistols as well as air rifles.

Our personal experience

Postulate: Our experience was limited to Trap shooting.

On the day we chose to shoot at BSV Mittenwald, it was supposed to rain. Luckily, we were blessed with a sunny afternoon instead. Either way, the weather would not have mattered much has the range has a roof.

Though it is a rather common feature nowadays, it is worthwhile mentioning that the range is automated. Thus, members and guests get a rechargeable chip-card from which the fare of each shooting session is deducted. Another interesting feature that the automation allows is the possibility for each shooter to track his/her reaction time between the disc calling and the 1st shot and - where applicable- between the 1st and the 2nd shot.

The discs, thrown by 5 machines, fly towards a beautiful landscape. As a matter of fact, I am going to put the delta between 25 and the score I got for each session on being stunned/distracted by the scenery as I shot!

We were warmly welcome by members of the managing team of the club. The crowd was typical of much of the shooting community: friendly and supportive. Because of the location of the range, we got the opportunity to socialize with Germans and Austrians.

Verdict: BSV Mittenwald was a fun experience :We will be back!

To Note: Before reaching the shooting range, we drove through Mittenwald. Mittenwald is a charming community of 7300+ souls, in Upper Bavaria, district of Garmisch-Partenkirchen. It is located just beyond the Austrian border, 113 km from Innsbruck, and about 100 km south of Munich. If your better half does not care for clay pigeon shooting, the village is full of charming little bars and restaurants where you can enjoy local specialties. Besides the culinary experience, Mittenwald also offers countless opportunities for hikers, cyclists, climbers …
