Frankenmuth is home to dozens of shops and stores.

Probably the most bizarre store in Frankenmuth is Bronners Christmas Store. It lays claim to being the biggest Christmas store in the world.

On the southern corner of the parking lot, you can visit the Silent Night Chapel, a more or less exact copy of the real Stille Nacht Kapelle in Oberndorf, Austria. There are a few significant differences between the two, however. The chapel in Austria only has one door. More importantly, it is not surrounded by loudspeakers endlessly playing the hymn interspersed with narration explaining the thing.
