I had promised Wilma this past winter, a trip to Frankenmuth. The sky has been a perfect shade of blue, the sun has been shining bright, little to no winds…just perfect fall weather! Perfect for a fall trip, so it was time to go!
Music from Marv Herzog played softly in the background. Every one of the Staff members were just the best with their service to the patrons. The Hotel was erected in honor of Marv Herzog. More information about the Hotel, click: Story behind the Hotel.

The room we had on the second floor was clean and cozy.
The Hotel is located on the Cass River, with a beautiful patio and scenery.
Our first night we had a dinner at the Frankenmuth Brewery.
Wonderful is how to explain our dinner and atmosphere!
Just had to try out one of their beers! My choice was the American Blond Classic Ale. Very smooth and not too lite. I’m really not a fan of the dark Lager beers.
As we arrived in Frankenmuth on a Wednesday, it was I believe the best time to arrive. Very little tourist, no crowds to deal with.
Frankenmuth is known for it’s “Fried Chicken Dinners”. The first restaurant Zehnders is where I have the most memories. My parents used to choose this restaurant over all others when we made our trips here.
Their competition is located just across the street! Bavarian Inn is much larger, and offers the same type of dinners.
The Bavarian Inn needed room to grow, so a bridge was established over the Cass River for access to their other attractions. Hotel, Waterslides and shops to purchase just about anything related to the German atmosphere.
We had a great assortment of German style foods for lunch and dinner. Did plenty of walking, getting in the exercise we need, and just had a wonderful time together.
Until next time, be safe and God Bless.
