Frankenmuth

 
 

Michigan's Little Bavaria...              

 
         
         
        Settled by fifteen Germans in 1845, Frankenmuth grew quickly and thrived for decades while holding fast to its Bavarian Heritage. By the mid-20th Century, Bronner's CHRISTmas Wonderland... and two famous restaurants, the Bavarian Inn and Zehnder's Chicken Dinners... had made Frankenmuth a popular destination. When I-75 was completed in the fifties, Frankenmuth became more easily accessible to travelers. Frankenmuth embraced its growing tourism industry with the creation of a Main Street Historic District, encouraging the preservation of historic buildings and use of Bavarian architecture in new construction.

Today, downtown Frankenmuth is lined with shops and restaurants... nearly all constructed in the style of old Germany. The scenic streets are clean and well-maintained. During the warmer months, Frankenmuth is decorated with an amazing amount of gardens, flowerbeds and hanging baskets... greatly enhancing its quaint beauty.
