Frankenmuth, Michigan is close to home but a world away from ordinary. This re-created alpine town wears its German heritage proudly and offers a larger than life “Willkommen” to all who visit. DeNureTours has been offering this destination for many years and it is always a favourite among guests and staff alike.
This 4-day getaway features the best of “Michigan’s Little Bavaria” with a Jager Schnitzel dinner, strudel making and wine sampling. And no visit to Frankenmuth would be complete without a stop at Bronner’s CHRISTmas Wonderland – the world’s largest Christmas Store!
With the perfect mix of activities along with time to explore at your leisure, you’ll quickly trade the November blahs for Bavarian delights on this fantastic getaway.
They wear their German heritage proudly here, like an Alpine hat covered in festive pins (just count how many of those you can spot on your trip). You’ll see it in the Bavarian architecture, taste it in their food, and feel it in the warm hospitality that’s signature to this tiny Bavarian town.
Thousands of guests each year enjoy Dorothy Zehnder’s apple strudel. Now, try your hand at making our signature dessert! Go behind the scenes and create an individual apple or cherry strudel.
German Jager Schnitzel Dinner
Enjoy a delicious traditional German dish of creamy mushroom sauce served with meat cutlets. A combination of family recipes and fresh ingredients, and entertainment makes for a unique Bavarian experience.
Bronner’s Christmas Wonderland is a retail store in Frankenmuth, Michigan, that promotes itself as the “World’s Largest Christmas Store”. Designed with an Alpine architecture and operating year-round, the building is 7.35 acres in size with landscaped grounds covering 27 acres.
Sample several of our Private Label German Wines prior to dining. Cheese and crackers will complement the naturally light and elegant wines that bear the balance of sweetness and acidity of wines from that area. You will also discover how to read the label (the wine’s ‘birth certificate’) and understand the character of German wines.
Take a drive by Bronner’s after dusk (literally any night of the year) for a half-mile holiday display lined by 100,000 twinkling lights — known only as 25 Christmas Lane!
