Next to the Bavarian Inn located in Frankenmuth is the Holz-Brücke. German for “wooden Bridge” it crosses the Cass River. Built in 1980 it is not as old as many other covered bridges but being over 40 years old you could probably say it is historic. I remember driving over it with my grandparents when I was a kid shortly after it was constructed. If I remember correctly, back then you had to purchase a token from the Bavarian Inn to cross over it. Now it is open to any vehicle and leads to the parking lot of the Bavarian Inn Lodge and a thrill to drive across.
P.S. This weekend is Snowfest in Frankenmuth. If you are going to be there, be sure to stop at Charlin’s Book Nook in the River Place Shops and say Hello. They carry all of my Lost In Michigan books.
