Danish Hot dog stand

Pølsevogn is a Danish word literally meaning "sausage wagon".

These hot dog stands can be found in most municipal areas of Denmark, and even in parks. They are essentially hand-pulled carts with room for one person inside making the hot dogs. Sausage-wagon food is popular among tourists and Danes alike. The remarkable thing about them is that they showcase the Danish spectrum of food dressings, such as Denmark's most notable dressing, remoulade and in some places they offer a local speciality.

The immigration and gradual integration of immigrants have also influenced this Danish tradition and resulted in a Halal Pølsevogn opened in Nørrebro, Copenhagen.

Danish themed Hot Dog Stands can be found in more and more countries throughout the world. 130 pølsevogne exist in Russia alone. Other countries with Pølsevogne include Norway, Sweden, Finland, Germany, England, Spain and as far away as Singapore. Many of these exists on basis of a large Danish permanent or tourist community. Pølsevogne has also been known to travel with Danish groups to events like the Le Mans 24 hour race.

Some Pølsevogne has famously made trips to and in other countries like a cross-country trip in USA collecting money for charity and a 2213 km Copenhagen-Paris trip as part of bet with a main supplier of hot dog buns.
