Fourth Generation Danish Master Baker

olsens bakery The Danes who founded Solvang in 1910 reshaped the landscape with their architecture and social institutions. While their windmills and quaint shops continue to draw visitors and serve residents nearly a century later, it's not only the cityscape that commands passionate allegiance, but the town's pastries, those irresistible confections that perfume the air with cinnamon, spice and fresh baked goodness.

Since 1970, Bent and Susy Olsen, owners of Olsen's Danish Village Bakery, have contributed to that ambient aroma, turning out kringles, cakes, cookies and breads from recipes perfected by Bent's great-grandfather.
