Bavarian Inn Restaurant
Frankenmuth is a beautiful & family oriented town to visit. Frankemuth is a German Settlement area.
One particular family - the Zehnder family inspired to open up a Bavarian Theme restaurant that is now called The Bavarian Inn.
Bavarian Inn is known for the best all you can eat Chicken Family style dinner and its own Glockenspiel which stands 50 ft high.
Starting at Noon the Glockenspiel will ring and start a storytelling of the Pied Piper of Hamelin that delights many people young and old.
The Bavarian Inn has the most beautiful murals painted on the walls inside the restaurant and many of those murals are painted of stories told to young children.
Frankenmuth is known for its Covered Bridge and many variety of stores that are great for families. It's a place that you will want to visit over and over again couple times a year.
