Traben-Trarbach is home to Germany's first minigolf course.
The Beton Concrete Mini Golf layout was built in 1955. You can find it at MGC Traben-Trarbach.
We've played a few Beton Concrete Mini Golf courses on our travels, notably in Nations Cup tournaments in Finland and Sweden.

He did see a Beton Concrete Mini Golf course while in Zeltingen-Rachtig.
Paul Bongni standardised the game with the Beton type of minigolf courses in 1953. The first Beton course was opened in Locarno, Switzerland.
