Christmas in Frankenmuth

Frankenmuth shines brightly all year round, but Frankenmuth during the holidays is an experience that is truly, well, magical.

This year, more than ever, we’re all craving a little extra cheer and togetherness. Frankenmuth has cranked up the festive and delivers in a big way this holiday season. With the addition of the brand new 60x120ft. ice rink located in the heart of downtown Frankenmuth, it sets the perfect scene to begin new holiday family traditions. The spectacular tree show is back and better than ever with a brand new seven-minute light and music show located at the Visitor Center, and while you’re there, pick up a Christmas Experience guide and light tour map, both will help you maximize on all things holiday to really get you in the spirit.

Speaking of events, there are SO many new events this season, make sure to check the calendar below for the most up to date information. There’s so much to do, you might need to stay an extra night or two to fit everything in.
