Welcome to Leavenworth, Washington & Obertal Inn

Obertal Inn, located in the Bavarian Village of Leavenworth, is family owned and operated since 1992. Surrounding Obertal (The German translation is “top of the valley.”) is a breathtaking view of the beautiful Cascade Mountains. Stepping outside of Obertal Inn places you in the heart of the Leavenworth Bavarian Village where international cuisine tempts your senses. Leavenworth is also a unique shopping experience with over one hundred stores, each with its own personality and ambiance. Most Leavenworth events are within walking distance of Obertal Inn.

Visit Leavenworth! Leavenworth offers something for everyone in every season. In the summer the focus is on water; rafting, canoeing, kayaking and tubing. We would be remiss, though, if we left out hiking, biking, climbing, horseback riding, walking and strolling. In short, there is a lot to do and you won’t be bored.

In the winter it’s all about snow. Two world-class downhill Alpine Ski slopes are within a 20 minute drive from the Obertal. Ski Hill run, in Leavenworth offers a great beginners ski slope so you may learn the ropes. Some of the most spectacular cross country skiing scenery is found right here in Leavenworth. Snowmobiling is simply spectacular and the horse drawn sleighs rides are one of a kind.

Meet Hans Mulders, Owner

A long time ago, one of my early mentors asked me “Hans, why are you in the hotel business?” He told me to think about it and tell him when I figured it out. It took me a couple of days, but it hit me when I realized that, in effect, we are doctors. Now before you start laughing, think about what we do. When you make plans to stay with us, you likely must drive here. You are also likely to just wanting to get away from the daily grind for a bit. After your drive and under the stresses of daily life, I am pretty sure your blood pressure has risen a bit and you are somewhat tense when you arrive at our Inn. We are equally certain, that, once you have stayed with us and slept in our comfortable beds and we have done all the “working” for you and you are ready to drive home, you will feel better than when you arrived here. I guarantee it!

“Quiet hotel in the heart of the action. Really great find right in downtown Leavenworth. On site parking, fabulous staff, big room, quiet and clean. The breakfast was an added bonus and so nice to be able to pick up and sit outside at the patio tables. Will definitely choose to stay here again.”

apple strudel


What started as a whim has turned into one of the most sought after Leavenworth treats for guests and locals alike.

Obertal owner, Hans, wanted to try his hand at baking something that was a fond childhood memory: hot apple strudel with homemade vanilla caramel sauce. Testing it out of his family, staff and eventually guests, the strudel became a popular request from Obertal Inn guests.

Before long, the word got around the village of Leavenworth and locals were stopping by to request freshly baked strudel. So now there is a sales window at Obertal where everyone can stop by to pick up their order of strudel.

Obertal Inn guests can preorder Apple Strudel. It is baked fresh on the day of your arrival and delivered to your guest room or Vacation Rental.
