Frankenmuth Famous Places
The well-known "Bronner's Christmas Wonderland" is located in Frankenmuth.
Bronner's features a 8,500 square meters (2.1 acre) showroom with over 50,000 trims and gifts for all seasons, reasons and budgets. This fascinating year-round attraction is for all ages to enjoy. Thousand of shimmering lights and sparkling ornaments, hundreds of animated figures and a world wide selection of trims and gifts are delightfully displayed.
The Bavarian Village of Frankenmuth is also home of the Bavarian Inn and Zehnder’s Restaurants.
Zehnder’s is the older of the two restaurants and is easily recognizable by its Mt. Vernon style and expansive front porch. Inside, comfortable dining is set amid an Early American decor.
Three generations of Zehnder’s work to retain the restaurant’s status among the eighth largest in the nation. It also houses Michigan’s number one retail bakery.
At the Frankenmuth Bavarian Inn Restaurant across the street, the atmosphere is truly German. Costumed waiters and waitresses in lederhosen and dirndls serve chicken along with a selection of German entrees.
Located in the lower level of the Bavarian Inn are the Castle Shops: The Royal Gift Shop, The Bear, Doll and Toy Shop, The Castle Bakery, The Chocolate Shop, Souvenirs & Cheers, The Wine & Beer Cellar, The Nutcracker Sweet Candy Corner, The King’s Snack Bar, and The Dragon’s Den & Game Room.
Zehnder's features traditional American cuisine, including world famous chicken dinners. For lighter dining or just a coffee break, stop in at the lower level Z Chef’s Cafe. And no visit would be complete without surrendering to the goodies in Zehnder’s world class bakery. Take a tour and watch them baking. Also in the lower level, the Gift Shop offers unique imports, fine glassware, and other gift ideas.
