Frankenmuth, Michigan

Frankenmuth is located in southeastern Saginaw County. This town was first settled by a group of Lutherans from Bavaria, Germany, led by Rev. Friedrich August Craemer in 1847. Intended as a missionary settlement, it was given its name from Franconia, a region of Bavaria, and "muth," which in German means: "courage."

Frankenmuth has become known as the Christmas Capital of the World, featuring unique shops, restaurants and resorts that keep the Christmas spirit alive throughout the entire year. It includes a covered bridge, an old mill, and several famous inns which feature old fashioned chicken dinners, American-style. It is known for many festivals held year-round - the Summerfest in August, the Autofest each September, and of course, the annual Oktoberfest. And thereís Christmas, of course, where the whole town lit up at night is worth a trip in itself! Come be a part of the over three million people who visit Frankenmuth annually, and experience a large chunk of Michiganís cultural heritage for yourself!
