Bavarian village in Washington

Leavenworth is a town of 2,000 people in Washington, USA
Modeled after a Bavarian village: German street names, building styles, music, food
Atmospheric in the weeks before Christmas

If you've ever been to Bavaria in Germany and later in life made your way to Leavenworth, Washington without knowing the town's back story, you would probably have felt the weirdest sense of deja vu. Spoiler: you were supposed to.

Because this town has on purpose been modeled to resemble a Bavarian village, and it has apparently been done to some detail. From the building styles, murals and flowering pots hanging out of every window, to the German street names, German music blasting across the town square, interior of the restaurants and the food (and beer!) served there. Come to Leavenworth in the weeks before Christmas and you would swear you were really wandering around in a European town. [Review by travelindicator]
