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.

Throwing it back eight years since this photo was taken and a few hundred years for everything in today’s photo.

This golden chalice was made for King Christian IV’s sister, Duchess Augusta of Holstein-Gottorp in 1632. The engravings on the the chalice can also be found in the illustrations of the Lutheran Strasbourg translation of the Bible, published just two years before in 1630.
