Bavarian Clone Town in America (Leavenworth/ Washington)

To avoid economic ruin, the town of Leavenworth - once an important logging hub - decided to transform itself into a Bavarian lookalike village in the 1960ies. Blessed with a stunning mountain landscapeand heaps of snow in winter the conditions were perfect.
Today Leavenworth is a favourite with tourists & hosts festivals such as the annual Oktoberfest and has a buzzing Christmas period.

Watch an award winning documentary about it:
