Culture Lover – Solvang



Flock to Danish-settled Solvang for its history and culture. Here, boutique hotel, The Landsby, is “hygge” personified with its sleek Scandi design. Luring aromas waft out of authentic Danish bakeries, Aebleskiver breakfast counters, and hip coffee joints, with walkable downtown thorough fares lined with European-style buildings and architectural façades. Elverhøj Museum of History & Art showcases modern and classic art, and Solvang’s Danish heritage, while the Wildling Museum of Art & Nature focuses on the meeting of those two realms. Indie book store, The Book Loft, comes complete with an antiquarian book section and an attic museum dedicated to Hans Christian Andersen. The open-air Solvang Festival Theater hosts stage performances and concerts, and rows of boutiques and galleries provide retail therapy offering everything from sophisticated Danish brands and sculptural design pieces, to toys, hand-crafted candy and chocolates,to carefully-curated cheeses and spices, to locally-made, artisan goods. Just beyond town, world-class golfing, tennis, and horseback riding. In town, horse-drawn trolley or guided Food & Photo tours educate and entertain, with a windmill-ed backdrop. Add a dose of hygge to your weekend – plan your escape.
