This is a delightful authentic Danish village that is not a tourist trap. There are great unique shops, little bistros, bakeries and windmills. We used to regularly take the choice of two scenic drives less than an hour each over the mountain pass or up the coast from beautiful Santa Barbara. Those more venturesome can drive a few miles further... More

Like stepping back in time to unique Danish architecture and atmosphere. Many restaurants and stores to see around town. Plan to spend at least 1/2 or whole day, you will not be disappointed, People are very friendly and helpful in pointing out the many different places to see around town.

Solvang is a boutique town.Unique architecture, houses and atmosphere.People are so nice, so polite and well mannered we kind of felt uncomfortable...cause we are from Miami. Scroll down the main street, enjoy good food. A visit is a must.

Coming from Europe Solvang as a town will strike you as odd. Although they have tried very hard to make it a lovely warm town I feel a strange and utter touristic atmosphere. Still, go there, driving up from LA because to trip to Solvang, taking the PHW1 or any other route is definitely worth the trip.

If you are looking for the Solvang's charming town center with shops,bakeries,etc. then be aware the address listed here is not correct (i.e. Apple Lane: 1200 Alamo Pintado Road, Solvang, CA 93463). Many of the pictures show the actual town area (near Wildling Museum, Mission Santa Ines, etc.) that spreads out along either side of Mission Dr. We thought there... More

I was with a tour group and we visited the Salvang which is chocolate box, Danish village and was founded in 1911 by small group of Danish teachers The city is home to a number of bakeries, restaurants and merchants offering a taste of Denmark in California. The architecture of many of the façades and buildings reflects traditional Danish style.... More

This little place is just five minutes from downtown Solvang, very easy to find. We were greeted by the cutest couple, they were very friendly and welcoming. They have several varieties that ripen at different times of the year. We were able to pick Galas, but they have them for sale at the stand if you would rather. We walked... More

The setting of this town made me feel like I'm in Denmark, even though I've never been to Denmark ;-). I like the little shops and restaurants as well as wine stores. The shopping was okay, but I did pick up a bottle of wine from Toccata, and it was excellent. I stopped by a couple of bakeries and ate... More

We visited the town for a short time on our return trip. The Danish pastries live up to their name. I only wish I would have bought more. This is a cute town and probably a gift shoppers paradise. I will say it is a bit touristy. However we were one of them.

When you travel there are often trade offs. Here's one I regret. Solvang is a really cool place and demands at least a day's visit. We were there for a few shorts hours. Solvang is rich with Danish heritage- so much to see so little time. Wine tastings abound but we did not have time for even one. What we... More
