Bronner's Christmas Wonderland, which bills itself as "the World's Largest Christmas Store", is located in Frankenmuth.The city's name is a combination of two words. "Franken" represents the Province of Franconia in the Kingdom of Bavaria, home of the Franks, where the original settlers were from. The German word "Mut" means courage; thus, the name Frankenmuth means "courage of the Franconians." The most popular nickname is "Little Bavaria", but the city is also nicknamed "Muth".HistoryThe area was settled and named in 1845 by conservative Lutheran immigrants from Roßtal area of Franconia in Germany. The group of settlers left Germany aboard the CAROLINE on April 20, 1845, and arrived at Castle Garden seven weeks later. They traveled via canals and the Great Lakes from New York to Detroit and arrived in August 1845. Sailing then on the Nelson Smith, the settlers made their way to Saginaw and traveled over land to the present location the city of Frankenmuth.Our United States trip planner allows you to schedule your trip to Frankenmuth, learn about its attractions, and find out about where else to go during your holiday.
