Sabina Brauner

Sabina Brauner has been living in the Rhine-Main area for more than 15 years and for the longest time in her desired district of Bornheim "because it connects village, city and conviviality in the most livable sense" for her. Nobody strolls through the world with such open eyes as the native of Lower Saxony, who prefers to share her discoveries with her fellow human beings on the Internet. The American and political scientist founded the blog "So nur in Frankfurt" in 2007 and is also Frankfurt's first over 40 fashion blogger on "Oceanblue Style". Here she writes mainly about lifestyle and fashion.

Swing, fun and games - miniature golf on the Nidda

Today I have some really good news for all of us: Not only has it been “hooray for days, the sun is there, let's run outside“. No, in addition to the nice weather (rainy days in between are simply ignored :-)), there is much better news: May is just around the corner! That means for most of us: Juhuuu, many days off.

What do you like to do on warm, days off? I feel like barbecuing, picnicking and just lolling on a blanket outdoors. I don't mind jogging a few laps through one of the numerous parks or cycling through the city. I just asked myself here in the blog whether Frankfurt could become a bicycle metropolis.

In any case, I'm looking forward to the coming days when the sky will be blue, the weather will delight us with ideal temperatures and a mild breeze will blow - a bit like on holiday.

 Well, and now I have to tell you where there is a place in Frankfurt where you can do all those activities together and where there is also a charming, surprising pastime.

I don't even talk long about it: Who of you remembers the good old miniature golf? Last Sunday I walked along the Nidda. Only through the huge park, which is so big that it borders on at least three different parts of the city (Bockenheim, Hausen and Ginnheim among others) - with about 168 hectares it is the largest green area of the city.

Along the Nidda you can picnic and grill wonderfully. And right next to it there is a pretty, well maintained miniature golf course. Finally time for friends and family with nice conversations and carefree fun - wonderful!

Minigolf Frankfurt: Bye, bye, boredom

The Minigolf at the Nidda is a classic course with 18 lanes. You can read more about this on

I imagine a casual day like this: A little brunch first. Then some movement for the body with the attempt to hit this unspeakably small ball into the net. Remember that one tram with the terrible net? I think I've managed for the first time in my life to place the ball within the allowed number of strokes on the net as intended.

The layout is pretty, as I said. Last Sunday, families or groups were there to relax and spend the day. I really liked the entrance to the course: for the first course, all the players have to walk through a thickly overgrown, triumphal arch-like passage. If you want to take a break, relax a bit or just have an ice cream or a coffee during the bike tour along the Nidda, you can sit down at nicely arranged wooden tables and watch the others play. So, great prospects, huh? Can you recommend other minigolf courses?
