Leavenworth - A Taste of Bavaria and a Northwest Adventure Hub

Bavaria meets the Pacific Northwest in Leavenworth, a Washington mountain town with a German flavor. Half-timbered storefronts, lederhosen-clad dancers, and apple strudel have transformed this former logging centre into an Alpine village. Yet this slice of Germany is in the Cascades, little more than 2 hours' drive from Seattle. And beyond bratwurst and beer, Leavenworth is an outdoor mecca, attracting adventure-seeking hikers, skiers, and families.
