Located north of Birch Run and south of Saginaw, Frankenmuth is famous for its Christmas store and charming downtown area. Fondly known as “Little Bavaria” because of its deep Bavarian roots, Frankenmuth is a Saginaw County city that is 3 square miles in size with a population of approximately 5,000 residents.
The name of Frankenmuth has two origins. The first is Franken which signifies Province of Franconia in the Kingdom of Bavaria. This area is home to the German tribe: The Franks, where the original settlers in the area are from. The second part of the name: Muth, derives from the German word of “Mut” which means courage. Frankenmuth therefore means “Courage of the Franconians”. Settled in 1845, the group of Franconian settlers traveled through canals bypassing New York and taking the Great Lakes to the Detroit area. They traveled through the area until reaching the modern day area of Frankenmuth. It was not until 1904 that Frankenmuth was officially incorporated as a village and then 55 years later it became a city.
The most famous site in Frankenmuth is Bronner’s CHRISTmas Wonderland which is considered the largest Christmas store in the world. This massive and magnificent store has helped make Frankenmuth a place where Christmas is a year round event. Set on 27 acres of property, the building of Bronner’s encompasses 7.35 acres and is so extensive that the company hires 500 employees to work during the holiday season. Anything you could possibly need to celebrate Christmas you could find at this store as well as much more. Over two million people visit Bronner’s CHRISTmas Wonderland annually; on November 26, 1994, just under 26,000 people stepped foot into the store.
Tourism is a big drive in Frankenmuth. Along with Bronner’s the downtown area is filled with boutique stores filled with unique gifts as well as tasty treats like coffee, hot chocolate, fudge and more. There are also two famous places for Frankenmuth chicken. Zehnder’s and the Bavarian Inn offer great dining for families amid a traditional atmosphere of old world styles. For kids, there is the Zehnder’s Splash Village and Waterpark which is an indoor waterpark that is a great way to spend the day with the kids any time of the year.
