Due to the construction of Franzensfeste a barracks was built in 1840 in Vahrn. The soldiers stationed there needed a shooting range for training. He should be outside the inhabited area for security reasons. It was then finally built on the eastern shore of Lake Vahrner. From there, the soldiers shot across the lake, where at distances of 50 to 250 meters were the Zielergräben. Still in the 1960s was shot here before the shooting range had to be closed for safety reasons. The old mechanism needed to move the targets was not preserved today.The Zieler were mostly disguised as Harlequins. So they mocked the shooter in case of a shot, and with good hits they made joy jumps, while they sang appropriate songs for entertainment.
