Danish pastries

Denmark’s best kept secret… until now? Danish pastries aren’t really Danish!


Viennese treats

In Denmark, these world-famous sticky delights are called Vienna Bread (wienerbrød), as they were first made in Denmark in 1840 by Viennese chefs. Still, Danish pastries rose in popularity over the centuries and are now a firm favourite of ordinary Danes.
