Specialty shops, clothing, food - lots of choices. Went at night and all the christmas lights were on, very beautiful. Stores are small and can be a bit cramped.

I visited Germany last year and have been longing for the Christmas Markets. Luckily, I live an hour's drive from Frankenmuth and can come here, the closest your going to get this side of the Atlantic. The only thing truly missing is the Gluhwein.

These shops have something for everyone on your list, pets and humans! Some shops are dog friendly...maybe next time we'll bring ours! There are toy shops, clothing, nick naks, almost every shop had something different and unusual! Our teen even enjoyed shopping here!

The grounds are lovely, there are many shops to find unique treasures, places for a quick bite to eat, or a special treat. Don't miss the bead shop, or La Crepe du Jour!

An interesting group of shops, with some of my favorites having to do with food, fudge, popcorn, candy and cupcakes to name a few, Also some unique shops with interesting items you don't see in every other shop in town.

Many options and variety of merchandise. Small cafes offer snacks and coffee, tea etc. The grounds are easy and fun to navigate with a European flavor. A relaxing way to enjoy the afternoon on a late fall day. Not crowded at all.
