Winter in Frankenmuth

Willkommen to Winter in Michigan's Little Bavaria.

Find a few of your favorite winter things in Frankenmuth!

While it may be the coldest season in Michigan’s Little Bavaria, it is arguably one of the prettiest.

The warm glow of white lights fill the dark winter sky throughout the south and north ends of town all season long. Sparkly snow caps grace the peaks of Bavarian architecture and rolling hills of shimmering snow in Memorial Park provide the ultimate sledding backdrop.

In Zehnder Park, the shiny Frankenmuth Ice Rink glistens in the bright winter sun. While, warm water parks bursting with fun, provide the perfect place to escape the cool winter air. Family-style chicken dinners are the place to share your New Year’s resolutions, while planning for the year ahead.

And don’t forget to add Frankenmuth festival season to your 2023 calendar. It kicks off this year with Zehnder’s Snowfest, January 25th-29th, as world-class snow and ice sculptures fill the streets.

So when you need to add a little snow to your days or a little warmth to your winter - head to Frankenmuth for a day full of wintery fun!
