Covered Bridge in Frankenmuth
It's beautiful and serene and it's called the Holz Brucke which means covered bridge in German. This community of Frankenmuth is pretty unique, having been founded by franconians (from the Bavarian area in Germany) way back in 1845. The 200+ foot long bridge all made of wood was built in a style reminiscent of those built back in the 1800's. It consists of oak, pine and douglas fir and it's topped with cedar shingles and yes, you can drive across it! The annual Snowfest is held this year beginning January 27th and runs through February 1. Don't forget to drive across the bridge!
