In the land of the Danish Pastry

When walking down Strøget, on our way to the ferry, we went to admire this display for bread and pastry. This reminds us that Copenhagen is the capital in land of the Danish pastry.

Danish pastry are made from a kind of puff pastry, or "pate millefeuille", and filled with custard or applejam. In Norway these pastries are named after the capital of the country where they are supposed to come from. In Norway a piece of Danish pastry is called "Wienerbrød", named from Viennoiserie bread from Vienna.

In this window there are, as well as great italian loaves of bread. So if you are going to taste the real thing - you might as well try one here, on your way to the boat.
