Shooting range bulletin

The Swiss Armed Forces make their military training areas accessible to civilians wherever possible. However, their first priority is always the needs of the troops. Military training areas and shooting ranges are generally considered restricted areas, and entering them is strictly prohibited unless stated otherwise.

Certain areas are open to the public for recreational activities during specific times at weekends and during free periods. There are usually rules in place to ensure the premises can be used in a way that is fair to all. It is important that everyone – people doing sports, walking their dogs, horseback riding or even just taking a walk – follows these rules.

For information on shooting times not listed here, please contact the regional information centre directly.
