BAVARIAN INN

Located in the heart of downtown Frankenmuth at One Covered Bridge Lane, BAVARIAN INN is a world-class getaway destination for families and couples.

Famous for its home-cooked chicken dinners, the Restaurant is located at 713 South Main Street.

The Inn has 360 guest rooms, four indoor pools and three whirlpools, 18-hole indoor miniature golf, family fun center with 100+ video games, children's village play area and free live nightly entertainment.

There is also the Castle Shops, located in the lower level of the Bavarian Inn.

A plaque outside in the Bavarian Inn Gardens reads:

"Theodore Fischer, a former bartender at the Exchange Hotel ( now Zehnder's Restaurant) established the Union House Hotel in 1888. His son Herman and daughter-in-law Lydia, are said to have begun the tradition of the "All you can eat" family-style chicken dinners served here. The William Zehnder Sr. family, distant relatives of Fischer, purchased the restaurant in 1950 and continued the chicken dinner tradition. In 1959 the Zehnders' extensively renovated, enlarged and redecorated the restaurant in a fantasy Bavarian motif. They also changed the name of the restaurant to the Bavarian Inn "
