Leavenworth, WA

A bit of the Alps in Washington State.

Photo of Leavenworth, WA A Bavarian village smack dab in the Cascade Mountains of Washington? It is true; Leavenworth, WA would not be out of place in Switzerland, Austria, or the south of Germany. But this charming mountain village is just a few short hours east of Seattle. And many folks from Seattle, as well as the rest of the country, come to Leavenworth to enjoy the quaint shops, German cuisine, and laid-back atmosphere.

Photo of Leavenworth, WA Outside of Leavenworth, you will find some of the best scenery in Washington. Towering mountains rise from the wooded valleys; cascading rivers tumble through the forests; and winding roads curve up toward the sky. Indeed, the setting is what makes Leavenworth such a special destination for vacationers. That, and the abundant supply of cuckoo clocks, knockwurst and chocolate that can be had in this alpine village.
