Long work days, taking the kids to and from practice, cooking dinner, packing lunches, and just trying to get through the week tend to leave no room for planning that romantic getaway you’ve been dreaming of. Luckily for you, we’ve created the perfect weekend itinerary of the must-see spots for a romantic getaway in Frankenmuth.

If you’ve always dreamt of staying at the Bavarian Inn Lodge now is the time to do it! Fall is a magical time at the lodge, from the enchanting fall decorations to the variety of fall-themed drinks and provisions you’re bound to start the weekend off right by staying here!

Some of the restaurants you have to check out on your first night inside the lodge, are the Lorelei Lounge or Oma’s Restaurant! After dinner, spend playful quality time together at our miniature golf course and end the night with a drink at the Ratskeller!

With a full day ahead of you it can seem overwhelming to try a squeeze in all of the fun but, don’t worry, we kind of know our way around here. Start your morning off with a flavored iced latte or a classic cup of joe from the Castle Shop Bakery at the Bavarian Inn Restaurant.

While sipping your morning pick me up, enjoy the beaming fall colors over the Cass River on your walk over to the River Place Shops where you’ll find Serendipity Wellness Spa. If what you are looking for out of this trip is relaxation (which I’m sure it is), booking a couples massage here is the perfect way to do it. However, if you’re looking to do some retail therapy, River Place Shops can ensure you do just that. There are a variety of boutiques and unique places to stop or grab a snack!

Exploring new activities together is essential for maintaining a healthy and vibrant relationship and what better time to do that than a romantic getaway? In River Place Shops, we offer the perfect opportunity to try something new as a couple at the Bavarian Blacksmith. Here you can forge a variety of products including pendants, ornaments, knives, and even swords! Not only do you walk away closer by trying something new together but you can keep whatever you choose to forge!

After spending some time at River Place Shops you’ll need to check out our favorite lunch spot, Michigan on Main! This intimate restaurant is located right on main street and is the perfect spot to soak up the beauty of our town while indulging in a delicious burger! Michigan on Main makes it a priority to source its food and beverage products from local Michigan businesses. So, if you’ve come to Frankenmuth looking to try something other than your typical domestic lite beer, their wide selection of German and Michigan-made beers is sure to do the trick.

Now that we’ve shared our insights on the prime spot in town for acquiring exceptional beer, it is only fitting that we cater to the needs of wine aficionados. The Wine and Beer Shop situated in the Bavarian Inn Restaurant hosts daily wine tastings.

If you’re seeking to add a touch of originality to your holiday charcuterie platters, you must visit the Frankenmuth Cheese Haus. Their in-house-made cheese spreads are heavenly, and their fan-favorite chocolate cheese spread is a must-try.

Your weekend in Frankenmuth isn’t complete unless you visit the Bavarian Inn Restaurant for the famous authentic German dining experience. Our world-famous “all-you-can-eat” chicken dinner is the ultimate plate of comfort food. This unique Bavarian experience is one you can’t leave Frankenmuth without trying.

And before you pack up your lederhosen, the Bavarian Inn Lodge hosts a Sunday Brunch Buffet in the picturesque Bavarian indoor courtyard. If you’re looking to end your weekend in a Nicholas Sparks book this is the place to do it. Our brunch is served poolside and accompanied by a pianist every week. Additionally, the 35+ delectable breakfast items and refreshing Bloody Mary’s and Mimosas will ensure everyone will be satisfied!
