Weekend Trip
Jun 2021
We came to Frankenmuth for the day, did all the regular stuff like Bronners, Zehnders for lunch and shopping but we stopped here and found lots of items for the everyday person and gifts for family and friends. I even found a hat that was a lifetime warranty and some incense. The ladies working there were very helpful.

Not as advertised. Complete disappointment
May 2021 • Couples
This city is NOT as advertised. It is described as a little Barvarian town. It is not at all. This area is the only part of the city that even resembled German architecture (and it is a shopping plaza). We were there during the DOG BOWL and the people would not allow us to park and shop. They were very rude. We drove around to see the town had little else to offer and went back to our hotel and drove home. Miserable trip. They sell you Hallmark and give you something very different. There are 4 or 5 snall towns by me that have more shopping and more character than Frankenmuth. Worst vacation ever.

Well maintained, scenic surroundings, great selection of stores
May 2021 • Couples
Another Must See when in Frankenmuth. Worth the stop just to see the beautiful buildings, many streams. river, and huge covered bridge next door. Great selection of owner operated stores.

Shopping
Feb 2021 • Couples
Great place lots of touristy, and over priced shops but when on vacation why not! All the shops are very different. I especially liked the dog shop and the book store. We also reserved some time with the iron forging place and very much enjoyed ourselves. I think the mall is part of the frankemuth experience. Also note the cookoo shop is kiddie corner to the mall at the south end and is definitely a must see!

Nice, could use a store refresh
Dec 2020 • Family
Several businesses seem to be going out of business so hopefully they will get some new stores in. Some of the independently owned stores need a merchandising and display lesson, a lot of stores look really dated. We love quite a few of the stores though!

Lots of shops in one place. The staff at each shop was very friendly and welcoming. It was a nice way to spend the day.

My favorite place to shop in Frankenmuth.
Nov 2020
I usually try to park around the covered bridge and then walk downtown and back, then visit the River Place Shops. The Jerky place, Sugar High Bakery, Norlins, the pet shop and a few other specialty shops are all must visit places on our trips. The landscaping, waterfall, views of the covered bridge, the paddle boat, and the holiday decorations are all fantastic.

Great shops but they open late
Oct 2020
We went to the shops around 9 am on a weekday and they were closed - didn't open until 11:00. We did go back and enjoyed the various shops and picked up quite a few Christmas gifts. Lots of places to sit and relax. Lots of places to get a soda or hot chocolate.

Really Cute Shopping Area
Oct 2020 • Couples
This was a really cute area, think outdoor mall with a touristy-Frankenmuth theme. Lots of different stores, clothes, candy, bakeries, books, pet stuff, etc. It was kind of crowded though, I’d recommend going during the week if you can. The only negative was that I was on a knee-roller cart and it was not easy getting around as a lot of the walkways are a cobblestone type design and there are some little hills. (I didn’t realize that going in)...Lots to see here! Worth checking out.
