Leavenworth Washington

Leavenworth is a Bavarian-styled village in the Cascade Mountains, in central Washington State. Alpine-style buildings with restaurants serving German beer and food line Front Street. The Nutcracker Museum displays thousands of nutcrackers, some dating back centuries. On the Wenatchee River, Waterfront Park is a habitat for ospreys and eagles. The village is a gateway to nearby ski areas and wineries.

When to visit

A popular time to visit Leavenworth is at the height of the warm, dry summer (Jul–Aug). Winters (Dec–Feb) tend to be cold and snowy. Annual events include Maifest (May), with traditional German dancing and music. Leavenworth Summer Theater stages open-air performances (Jul–Sep). The village is busy during Oktoberfest (Sep/Oct), which features food and drink, live music and keg-tapping ceremonies. Strolling carolers, sledding and a glühwein tent draw revelers to the Christmas Lighting Festival (Dec).
