What travelers say:

There is a 5,000-person Danish village in Southern California called Solvang, in the San Ines Valley in Santa Barbara County, California. Solvang was founded by a group of Danes in 1911. It has grown into a theme town since 1947, when it attracted national media attention. The city has many bakeries, restaurants and businessmen, offering Danish flavors in California. Many of the exterior walls and buildings reflect traditional Danish styles. The 1:3 scale copy of the Copenhagen Round Tower or Rundetrn was completed in 1991 and can be seen in the city center.

Additional Information


The Danish Village is a sunny town that the Danes say is even more Danish than Denmark. It is sunny most of the year. In the Danish language, Solvang means “the field under the sun”, and Danish Village is exactly as its name suggests. The town has been meticulously assembled and arranged by the Danes and is just like their hometown. It has a Nordic-style church, windmills, shops and even the Little Mermaid statue from Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tale.
