Munchen Haus, Leavenworth

There were two places that we had to visit while in Leavenworth, Munchen Haus for sausages and Andreas Keller for a pork knuckle. Munchen Haus is an outdoor restaurant that serves up the best German sausages in town.


Their menu is pretty small, with 5-6 different sausages and some sides. So after placing your order, they give you a buzzer, so you can go find a seat. The drinks are also in the back with a good assortment of Icicle Ridge Beers, and some Mulled Wine (maybe just for the Christmas Market). There are plenty of tables, but only a few have a nice fire right in the middle of the table.

Beipas chose the Bratwurst, while I chose the Bockwurst, and another friend chose the Currywurst. We all agreed that mine was the best. It is a mix of Pork & Veal giving it white color, and mixed with Green Onion, Parsley, and Celery (and MSG). Yes, it actually made note that it has MSG in it. But it is definitely worth it. It was so delicious. The skin was very thin, and the meat was juicy and packed with flavour.


The bratwurst is 1/3 pound of all pork. We thought this one was the white sausage, but it wasn’t. It was good, but not as good as the bockwurst.


The Currywurst is 1/4 pound with a hint of curry.


They also have dozens of different mustards, many of which mixed with beer. I’d love to try them all if I had the chance. They also have traditional sides like ketchup, relish, and sauer kraut.


If in Leavenworth, you should definitely try it out. There’s another sausage place across the street, but I’m not sure which is better.
