Frakenmuth Michigan

We visited Frakenmuth, MI with The Romans. We stayed at Zehnders Splash Village the waterpark inside the hotel and ate at Zehnders restaurant for lunch. Frakenmuth was founded in the 1800's as a mission to the Chippewa Indians.

Elliot enjoyed the piggy back rides from Emma.

The waterpark has 3 slides and giant bucket that periodically dumps water. The hotel is adjacent to Bronners Christmas Wonderland

Bronners is the size of one and half football fields dedicated almost entirely to Christmas paraphernalia. An ornament for every hobby and personality you can imagine. The founders are Christian and throughout the store it is clear that Jesus is always the reason for the season. You can spend hours just viewing the giant store displays. Visited by 2 million people a year from all over the world. On a Monday morning we could hear people in the store not speaking English and taking photos.

The Glockenspiel plays the story of the Pied Piper of Hamlin three times a day
