What people are saying:

Solvang, a city in Santa Barbara County, California, is located from San Francisco to Los Angeles, more than 300 kilometers from San Francisco, more than 150 kilometers from Los Angeles, less than 10,000 people, two-thirds of them Danish descendants. In 1911, five immigrants from Denmark bought the land and built a village school there, where the original immigrants and their children were able to receive traditional Danish education while working in farming or other industries. So, around the school, it slowly formed the Danish city far from Denmark.

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.
