Driving along Main Street, one can’t help but notice a smiling gray mouse peeking his head out of a 6-foot tall chunk of cheese. My 5-year old nephew was a good sport and allowed me to take a few photos of him posing. This is his invisible pose. You can’t see the little guy, can you? I didn’t think so.
On a busy day, you may experience a bit of a wait as people line up to get their photo taken in front of this fun Frankenmuth roadside attraction. Luckily, we were there mid-week and didn’t wait more than a few minutes.
A Frankenmuth Roadside Attraction
Made of cement, this isn’t the type of attraction one would want to sink their teeth into, but just a few steps away one is free to sample a variety of cheeses that include chocolate cheese (think fudge taste and consistency) and cheese spreads made fresh on location inside the Frankenmuth Cheese Haus. Visitors to the store can watch the cheese making process taking place through the full glass wall in the back of the store during production days.
The Frankenmuth Cheese Haus opened in 1968 and was the first of the Frankenmuth businesses to adopt the Bavarian-style architecture. You would think I would have taken a photo of the outside of the store since I photograph everything and only have like 800 photos from a single overnight trip. Sadly, I could only find photos from inside the store. Go figure.
The mouse has stood at this location since 1970. It can be seen at 561 S. Main Street and should be on your list of things to do when in Frankenmuth.
