Willkommen to the Real-life Bavarian Magical Kingdom of Frankenmuth and the Bavarian Inn!
To find a place this perfect - this picturesque - one normally has to thumb through a book of fairy tales, or peer into a sno-globe after a vigorous shaking ...but here it is, in all of its Olde World, European flavor.
