We had so much fun checking out the new blacklight mini-golf recreation center in Asperg, near Ludwigsburg. The Simigo 3D Schwarlicht-Indoor-Minigolf was just what this mom ordered on a scheduled off mid-week school day.
This 18-hole indoor arena comes complete with a 3D glasses, a rolling drink cart, clubs and fluorescent golf balls. I highly recommend wearing the 3D glasses. Don’t cheat by slipping them off, because you’ll spoil the effects.
The arena is filled with local scenes from around Stuttgart, a spooky ghost train as well as Marvel comic heroes that pop right out of the wall at you. By the way, the owner (Thomas Teis) is nice and friendly and speaks excellent English.
It took us about an hour and a half to go through all 18 holes. Don’t kid yourself even if you are a pro as some of the holes are not what they appear. All I can say is that I wish I would’ve practiced my chipping beforehand.
I advise you to make online reservations, especially for the weekends which are quite busy. We had four in our party, but you are able to reserve up to 12 people for one slot. It was very affordable too. I had a reservation for four and drinks and it cost 40 Euros.
And the winners are…
How to Get There
It took us about 30 minutes to drive to the Simigo 3D Indoor Mini-golf recreation center from Boblingen but leave time for traffic. Our reservation was at 5:15 on a weekday in Stuttgart. I know, not well thought out. My kids were home all day. We made it though!
Parking is also street parking for 2 hours during the day; we parked nearby. Save yourself some time and gas. There is a train stop Asperg (S5 to Bietigheim-Bissingen) right across the street. Simigo is tucked in the corner of a building that has several business, so be on the lookout for it. The address is 95 Bahnhofstrasse, Asperg.
It’s also worth mentioning that there is a great pizza restaurant (Ristorante Leonardo DaVinci) that’s right down the street. Delicioso!
