På Trappen in Dragør

På Trappen (Strandstræde 8, Dragør, Denmark)

#Dragør

I took today’s photo in 2011. Using Google’s street view I see that nothing has changed in the past eight years. After doing a little research it looks like this 235-year old building won’t be changing in the future either. This place was protected beginning in 1945. Although the sign indicates a bakery, this hasn’t been an active Danish bakery since 1976.

I found the photo below from when it was an active bakery, but this picture may be from a hundred years ago.

På Trappen was built as a bakery in 1784 for baker Peter Christian Trochmann.

Another interesting tidbit I learned from researching this building is the Rolling Stones stayed nearby in 1966 before their concert in Copenhagen. They stayed in Dragør to avoid the fans in the city, but the strategy didn’t fully work as their location was discovered.

I visited Dragør in 2016 for the second time. The weather was fantastic, and my love for this little town grew. More photos to come.

This time last year I was wrapping up my stay in Denmark. On nearly my last day I took a bike ride from Copenhagen to the south side of the airport to visit the cute little town of Dragør. Dragør consists of street after street of little yellow houses with either red tiles or thatched roofs. If memory serves, cars aren’t allowed on the cobblestone streets unless they live there so wandering through the narrow streets is lots of fun. However, if quaint, Danish architecture isn’t your thing you can head to the water to check out the lovely harbor.

Although not in the above photo, boats were coming in and out of the harbor bearing flags of their origin. I saw boats from Sweden, Norway, Germany, and of course Denmark.

Dragør is only a dozen or so kilometers from Copenhagen, but it seems like a different world.
