The Bavarian Inn Lodge is a treasure in the heart of downtown Frankenmuth – Michigan's No. 1 tourist attraction. The Lodge offers 360 European-themed guest rooms, including whirlpool and family suites to meet your family’s needs. Check out the Bavarian Inn Lodge's thrilling Tower Twister Body Slide. Then spend the day enjoying the four indoor pools (one with giant waterfall) and three whirlpools. Our Fun Center is the largest hotel arcade in all of the Midwest with more than 100 games. When you play here, you get a sneak peak at the newest video games; Just think of us as an “official video game test center” where you can win tickets for awesome prizes in our redemption area! We recently had a guest win enough tickets that he redeemed them for a Nintendo DS! And if all that is not enough, we also offer an 18 hole miniature golf course, along with two restaurants and lounges all under one roof. So rain or shine your family is sure to have a good time.
Walk out our front door and take a stroll (or free shuttle ride) over the wooden covered bridge, and you're at the world-famous Bavarian Inn Restaurant and Castle Shops, 40 River Place shops and boutiques, the Bavarian Belle Riverboat Cruise and over 100 shops on Main Street. We are also within walking distance to Bronner's CHRISTmas Wonderland, Frankenmuth Historical Museum, Michigan's Military and Space Museum, and other popular Frankenmuth attractions.
Nestled on the banks of the beautiful Cass River, the Bavarian Inn Lodge is a world-class getaway for families and couples. Millions of visitors come to stay, play, shop and be welcomed by our home-cooked dinners, delightfully cozy beds and warm Bavarian hospitality.
The Lodge offers a HUGE family fun center complete with over 100 video and redemption games, an 18-hole miniature golf course, the Ratskeller café that offers casual dining and family karaoke on Friday and Saturday evenings. There is plenty to do all under one roof!
Splish – Splash the day away in one of our three family pools (one is a toddler pool, great for little ones and one has a giant waterfall!), two family whirlpools or Tower Twister Body Slide. The Lodge also offers an adult only pool and whirlpool if traveling without the kids.
