Solvang: An Authentically Danish-American Town

Founded in 1911, the community of Solvang holds Danish-American charm and tradition, while thriving year-round as a destination loved by families, couples and people of all ages. Only two hours up the coast from Los Angeles, Solvang has carried on the Danish traditions of language, folk dancing, music and cuisine. The streets are flanked with Danish farm-style architecture and windmills of all sizes catch the first and last light throughout the village. The Danish Days annual festival emerged in 1936 and continues to commemorate Solvang’s heritage every September. Festivals and celebrations are traditional parts of Solvang’s charm – from the Taste of Solvang every March and Julefest (Yule-fest) during December. Be drawn into Scandinavian culture strolling Solvang’s flower-lined streets or stepping into five authentic bakeries and more than 30 restaurants and cafes – featuring not only Danish cuisine but also wine-country, international and traditional American favorites. Dozens of wine and beer tasting rooms, wine bars and gourmet food shops tempt palates with the bounty of nearby vineyards and farms.  To learn more about Solvang, visit City of Solvang at www.CityofSolvang.com.
