Gnomes of all shapes and sizes live in and around Michigan's Little Bavaria - and you can find them with the Frankenmuth Gnome Hunt!

Right now you may be thinking, what in the world is a Gnome Hunt? And that's a great question...


The Frankenmuth gnome hunt is a FREE scavenger hunt activity that will take you on an adventure all around town. It's a hunt for helping you find your Frankenmuth "gnomies."


Gnome hunt guides can be picked up at the Frankenmuth Visitor’s Center, located on Main Street between the Bavarian Inn Restaurant and Frankenmuth Historical Museum.

Use the map on the guide to go hunting for gnomes and gnome names. Over 30 gnomes are hidden throughout the different stores, restaurants, attractions and businesses in Frankenmuth. Each of the known gnome homes is listed on the map for your convenience.


As a gnome hunter, your job is to write the gnome names and their homes on the guide. Once 10 gnome names have been collected - return to your completed guide to the Visitor’s Center to claim a special prize!


Happy Hunting!
