  • Extremely expensive for what you get and none accepted the heavily promoted bavarian perks card. No bargains or even normal prices here

  • Honestly this was a great place to make a stop at. You will have stores here you won't find anywhere else and they are all here together. My son loved it. Said it reminded him of the village in Germany 🇩🇪. Definitely recommend this place. Stores I recommend: Cherry Republic Sticky Situation Woody's Mirror Maze And more...
  • Such a cool area of shops in a really neat town. Across the parking lot from Bavarian Inn. Easy walk. It feels like you are in a whole new world walking around. Like Disney World. I loved that the food places were much less expensive than other tourist towns we visited this trip. Got ice cream and fudge for half the price of Mackinac. Sat in the tables provided and had a great afternoon.
  • LOVE! such a cute little town, loved the ladies in traditional dresses at the souvenir shop. It’s all expensive of course but well worth the visit to just walk around and enjoy the views. There’s tons of shops so it’s hard to not find something you like. If you walk on the bridge there’s little lookouts that are good for photos and if you keep walking along the street there’s tons of other cool shops and restaurants to check out. There was an estate sale when I went with nice cheap antiques
  • I have been to Frankenmuth several times and always stroll through the River Shops. Always lots to see and experience. Love the Dog and Cat shop and always love looking for the perfect T-shirt. The Circus was set-up during our recent visit and it looked to be a very good time. Check out the Frankenmuth River Shops.
  • Love it. In the mornings it is nice and quiet not a lot of people. Serendipity Wellness Spa is amazing. And the hello dogs and cats shop is the best! Watch yourself at the bead Haven that lady doesn't like to return stuff even if it's chipped or broken and we had bought it like 25 minutes prior to returning it.
