Frankenmuth is a small American town in the heart of Michigan state, USA, fairly close to the border to Canada and home to the largest Christmas store in the world as well as to the famous chicken restaurant Zehnder’s. The town is nicknamed Little Bavaria and it’s the German cultural and gastronomic island of Michigan. And for a good reason, given the architecture and the flavour and it’s a tourist destination known to all Michiganders. Pretty and shy, unknown for people outside the 300-km radius, Frankenmuth qualifies as worthy daytrip or a getaway weekend and it will immerse the foreign traveller into what small town America is, could be or should be.
A simple walk through the town centre provides a lot of opportunities for visiting artist studios, shops, bakeries etc. The Christmas store itself is something out of the ordinary, and the usual line-ups to get into the famous restaurant speaks itself about the delicious food available that makes people wait patiently for a table.
