Leavenworth is a small Bavarian-styled town in central Washington State in the Cascade Mountains.
When I hear Leavenworth I think of Leavenworth Kansas, the home of Fort Leavenworth and the US Penitentiary.
Not a small tourist town in the middle of Washington.
One of the guys on my team used to live out here and I pumped him for Washington must-dos, and this was a golden nugget he dropped.
Touristy – yes.
Traffic – yes.
Overpriced – yes.
But it’s definitely a cool stop, and there are certainly a lot of people who make the day trip up from Seattle to see it.
Grab a bratwurst and a beer at the Munchen Haus.
Listen to some live accordian music.
Stroll the trails on Blackbird Island and watch the Wenatchee River flow by.
Enjoy a little people-watching with the tourists.
And relive some of the good times living in Germany. Enjoy some of our old photos tagged Bavaria
Very cool stop, something to do once. Twice would be one time too many.


When you have Steins for relatives, you can’t NOT take this shot!
