Nestled in the heart of Michigan, Michigan’s Little Bavaria is a vibrant town with a rich history, cultural festivities, and eye-catching architecture. But beyond its famous chicken dinners lies an often-overlooked treasure: a collection of stunning murals that add a splash of color and artistry to this quaint town. In this virtual tour of Frankenmuth’s most-loved murals, we will stop at key landmarks including the Bavarian Inn Restaurant and Lodge, Frankenmuth River Place Shops, Frankenmuth Cheese Haus, and the Covered Bridge Shop. Each of these locations hosts unique murals that are not limited to decoration purposes but also to tell stories, encapsulate history, and celebrate the spirit of Frankenmuth.
