So, for every iconic experience you’ll have here — like trips to two of Michigan’s top indoor waterparks, world famous chicken dinners, and Christmas all year — you can be sure there’s an out-of-the-ordinary one to go with it.

It’s clinking steins of good, cold German beer with strangers at one of our Frankenmuth festivals, or tasting your first sip of Christmas Town Ale on a tour of Frankenmuth Brewery. Taking a classic horse-drawn carriage ride through town, or taking it all in on our 16-person PedAle Trolley. Winding down on a relaxing riverboat cruise, or amping up to go zip lining at Frankenmuth Aerial Park.

Iconic? Off the beaten path? We like to think it’s a whole lot of both here! See all the sides of this surprising little German town with some of the top things to do in Frankenmuth below.

Once you land, you’ll be in Bavaria... Michigan’s “Little Bavaria”, but the experiences here are anything but small.


After all, we didn’t become one of the top travel destinations in Michigan by throwing a few tiny festivals, or world famous for serving pint-sized chicken dinners!

We wear our German heritage proudly here, like an Alpine hat covered in festive pins (just count how many of those you can spot on your trip). You’ll see it in our Bavarian architecture, taste it in our food, hear it pouring out from our festivals, and find it in some of our most iconic things to do. Most of all, you’ll feel it in the warm hospitality that’s so signature to our tiny Bavarian town.

Those German details you’ll notice all throughout your stay? They’re not an afterthought. They’re all real Frankenmuth — and you’re always welcome here
