Frankenmuth is one of the top tourist destinations in Michigan. There are a great number of things for you and your family to do in Frankenmuth. With more than a dozen festivals each year, Frankenmuth welcomes visiors with Bavarian hospitality regardless of the season. From world-famous chicken dinners and the largest Christmas store in the world, to world-class golf, there is a definitely something for everyone.
Frankenmuth was founded in 1845 by a group of fifteen German-Lutheran missionaries who came to this area for the purpose of teaching Christianity to the Chippewa Indians.
FRANKEN means the area where the settlers came from and MUTH means courage in German. "Courage of the Franconians" is what Frankenmuth is today. It is a thriving city of nearly 5,000 residents who take great pride in their German heritage. The German ethnic is portrayed in the city's architecture and well-tended flowers and lush greenery.
Let me uncover the story of how Frankenmuth became "MICHIGAN'S LITTLE BAVARIA" and see all of the must-see attractions.
