The diverse nature in Rhineland-Palatinate with a high proportion of forest areas is a region rich in game. Even if you cannot see game every time you take a walk in the forest we know that many game species still move through the forests of Rhineland-Palatinate in sufficient numbers. The roe deer and red deer that live here partly live by biting off forest plants. This is a problem when the density of game is too high for this forest. Game species that appear in high numbers have a specifically defined hunting period during the course of the year that is absolutely essential to control the game stock and at the same time enable the sustainable harvesting of healthy game meat. A natural forest is therefore at risk without hunting. Problems due to damage by game have been decreasing for some time. Besides improving the natural food on offer in the forests, the reason for this positive trend is also the intensive hunting.
The Jakobsberg Hotel & Golf Resort is situated high above the Lorelei valley between forests and vineyards. A vast hunting ground is right next to the hotel. Hunters are instructed and accompanied by the responsible hunting ground supervisor during hunting trips on the Jakobsberg. They are your contact for hunting in the Upper Middle Rhine Valley UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The deals for hunters at the Jakobsberg hotel include roe buck and wild boar hunting as well as hunting wild boars from a raised hide. The raised hides are usually closed stable turrets that have room for up to three people. You can find all the current deals for your hunting holiday under “Hunting Packages”. Please do not forget to bring your valid hunting licence with you.
A hunting trip on the Jakobsberg is characterised by a respect for animals and consideration of animal welfare standards.
