    Worth checking out while visiting Frankenmuth
    If you’re visiting Frankenmuth, this is a good place to stop and do a little shopping. It’s also a great place to get treats. We were excited that they had a pasty shop. We had never had a pasty before, so we definitely stopped in there. The Sugar High Bakery was our favorite place to stop for treats. They have cupcakes, macarons, gelato, etc.. they even have treats for your puppy! The Chocolate Haus was another spot we stopped for dessert. They have fudge and ice cream along with other tasty treats. Enchanted Forest has fairies and gnomes and dragons along with many other “fantasy“ things. There is also the mirror maze. It’s $10 and it takes you about five minutes to go through it but our granddaughter loved it. All of these shops and more will help you fill a couple hours in the day.

    Interesting and eclectic shops
    Very nice way to spend a few hours browsing unique and unusual stores! Prices were a little high, but that should be expected since Frankenmuth is a tourist location. Going in May 2023, it wasn't busy so we took our time. I think we went in every shop! We purchased some perfume, cherry whiskey, ice cream, and chocolate.

    Best part of the trip!
    There is something for everyone in here. And if you’re like me and my mom, you’ll walk away with a few bags of goodies. We stopped at the Michigan Store and got a few things since they open before the other stores. We also went to Hello Cats and Dogs and picked out dog treats and a few trinkets. Yankee Candle of course (great sales!), Woody’s because the galaxy painted skull in the window was a must-have for me. Also Sugar High Bakery for more dog treats and people treats too! The cookies and cupcakes are SO good.

    Good shopping
    Nicely situated by the river, an enjoyable walk through the many shops. It's a tourist trap but a nice one. Good variety of stores and wares, spend a couple of hours. Be sure to visit the blacksmith making knives, amazing to watch.

We enjoyed the setting of the hotel among the trees. A little hidden & hard to find. The staff were really nice.

An Interesting mix of stores. The stores are arranged in circles in a park like setting. We found a variety of merchandise in the shopping center. Would definitely add to your trip.

Nice place to shop. Walked there from our hotel. They have some unique shops. Some shops were overpriced in my opinion. Visit the wineries that are in there

Easy to walk around. We visited a few places. Overall, a variety of stores and some place will have what you like looking at.

Wheelchair users: there were some stairs inside shops, but plenty of room to navigate a wheelchair in the places we stopped at.
