WILKOMMEN to Frankenmuth! The city’s name is a combination of two words, the kingdom of Bavaria where the original settlers came from and the German word for courage, thus Frankenmuth meaning “Courage of the Franconians”. We’re off for some mid-week shopping, so there will be smaller crowds than on weekends. We will spend 2 nights at the Bavarian Inn Lodge with breakfast included each morning. We will visit Bronners Christmas Wonderland with over 300 decorated trees and 6000 styles of ornaments. We will return after dark to 25 Christmas Lane for the holiday display of 100,000 lights. Enjoy some time at Birch Run Outlets, the largest outlets in the mid-eastern U.S.A. Be sure to take home some Frankenmuth fudge made from original recipes. Pack your appetite and we’re off to Michigan’s Little Bavaria.
A valid Canadian passport is required for this tour.
