Willkommen. In German it means welcome. An offer to come and join. There is a place that’s all about being welcome. Welcome to family time. Welcome to playtime. Welcome to Christmas time all year long. Welcome to Frankenmuth. Michigan’s little Bavaria, where we find all the things that make time together so meaningful. It’s a place of horse-drawn carriages down decorated streets and across wooden covered bridges. Of riverboat cruises and world famous chicken dinners. Enjoy scenic views of the Cass River and the Bavarian-Inspired River Place Village. So when we need to simplify the agenda, when we need to spend the whole day with our kids, instead of just hearing about it right before bed, stop by and feel the warm welcome of Frankenmuth, where you are sure to find the simple joys of life.
