Leavenworth, WA: Magical Bavarian Village in the Cascades
Smack dab in the center of the Pacific Northwest sits a town that’ll make you swear you’ve been transported to Germany.
Leavenworth’s Bavarian-themed architecture draws many tourists from Seattle and the surrounding areas, but there’s something behind the European-inspired facade.
The town’s Bavarian theme is charming yet undeniably kitchy, but there is much more to Leavenworth than lederhosen and pretzels if you know where to look. (Though while we’re on the subject, you should definitely get a pretzel while you’re there!)
We lived in Leavenworth for 6 months and seriously fell in love with this mountain town. We’re sharing what to do, where to eat and how to experience Leavenworth like a local.
