Ahh, the Bavarian Inn. Home of the world famous chicken dinners with all the fixings! After your belly is full, wander the shops and taste some wine. Great way to stay warm this winter in Frankenmuth!
Do you want to go beyond the chicken? (I won't tell)
La Crepe Du Jour is a little creperie located in the River Place Shops in Frankenmuth, Michigan. Come grab a crepe with a little taste of France! Oh and they have yummy coffees!
The Paris inspired décor and musicis so fun! I love watching my crepe being made, it adds so much to the experience.
My favorite crepe is the Athena, with feta, onions, turkey, roasted tomatoes, spinach and hummus! But the Nutella and banana crepe is very hard to pass up!
Shhh! We've got a great way to warm up from your fingers to your toes!
The Grand Traverse Distillery, located in the River Place Shops in Frankenmuth Michigan is a great shop to warm up, shop and taste some bourbons Michigan's premier , grain to bottle spirits. This micro-distillery
Hand crafted in small batches using local ingredients to produce vodka, whiskey, gin and rum. We also have Black Star Farms Wines.
An absolute must-do during winter in Frankenmuth is wander across the Holz-Brücke covered bridge. It offers glorious views of the River Place Shops, Cass River and Bavarian Inn.
Perfect Michigan winter activity for the whole family!
There's so much fun and family activities in Frankenmuth all year round!
One of my favorite things to do in Frankenmuth in the winter is to visit Bronner's Christmas Wonderland! The store is decorated inside and out all year round so you can find fantastic personalized gifts, home décor and fabulous Christmas items whenever you visit Frankenmuth!
Winter in Frankenmuth is awesome because you can go ice skating in Zehnder Park (right next to Zehnder's and across the street from the Bavarian Inn)!
Don't have skates? Rent them! There is a fee to go ice skating.
The Frankenmuth Ice Rink is open approximately the last week of November until mid February. It is a great family and friends winter outdoor activity!
What's cool (literally): Their ice rink is regulated by its own chiller so you can go skating no matter the weather!
Check their website for more info and updated hours.
I love to bundle up and go shopping at the River Place Shops or along Main Street in Frankenmuth.
Pop into incredible stores like Zak and Mac's, the White House Boutique, Frankenmuth Fudge Kitchen, Frankenmuth Cheese Haus and the Bavarian Inn.
It's an excuse to cuddle up under a blanket and see all the sites while feeling like royalty!
You can embark on your horse drawn carriage ride with Fantasy Carriage Company located on Mill Street near Zehnder's.
No need to book early or make reservations, just walk up! Perfect winter activities in Frankenmuth for the whole family!
Visit the serene Silent Night Memorial Chapel located adjacent to Bronner's Christmas Wonderland. You can park in the Bronner's parking lot and walk to the Chapel.
The Silent Night Memorial Chapel allows a small area for you to see the chapel interior but you can't approach the alter.
The Chapel is a replica of the original chapel in Oberndorf/Salzburg, Austria, which marks the site where “Silent Night” was first sung on Christmas Eve in 1818.
Zehnder's Splash Village Hotel and Waterpark is a great chance to get out of the cold! Plus, you can purchase half or whole day passes so you can splash and play to your heart’s content!
Grab lunch at Elf Hollow Cafe and play in the Arcade when you need to dry off for a bit! This is a great way to spend winter in Frankenmuth!
