Frankenmuth is in Saginaw, and in the Central Region. Frankenmuth is located in the County north of Flint between Flint and Saginaw along Interstate 75. Also found on the banks of the Cass River near the Flint River and Saginaw Bay (part of the Saginaw-Bay City-Midland, Michigan metro area).
Frankenmuth was first settled by a group of Lutherans from Bavaria, Germany, led by Rev. Friedrich August Craemer in 1847. While first meant to be a missionary settlement, it was given its name from Franconia, a region of Bavaria, and "muth," which in German means: "courage".
The town of Frankenmuth featurs unique shops, restaurants and resorts that keep the Christmas spirit alive throughout the entire year.
