Willkommen to Christmas in Frankenmuth!

We could all use a little extra magic this holiday season, and this year Frankenmuth more than delivers.

It’s no surprise Christmastime is many of our visitor’s favorite time of year to visit. From the sounds of bells jingling from horse drawn carriages to visiting the world’s largest Christmas store, Frankenmuth during the holidays is a special place.

This year has been tough for so many reasons, which is why we want to make this year extra magical for guests of all ages. We’ve created a Christmas Experience like you’ve never experienced, and we’ve kept safety in mind. The hospitality and cleanliness you have come to expect has been amplified and this attention to detail can be seen as you’re welcomed by the Frankenmuth arch from the south to the brand-new displays and brightly lit trees as you head to the north end of town.

The best way to experience everything? Slow down, stay an extra night, enjoy the slower pace we enjoy here and take in the small-town moments only found in our tiny Bavarian town.
