Heralded by many as one of the best hot dog stands in Denmark, the taste, quality, and generous serving sizes make it a popular choice amongst locals and tourists.

Location: Pedersens Pølser is located in the heart of the city center, in Aarhus, Denmark. The stand is a noticeable red cart typically found in the popular area of Ryesgade, near the Aarhus Central Food Market.

Getting there: Reaching Pedersens Pølser is simple, given its central location in Aarhus. If you’re staying downtown, a short walk, cycle, or bus ride will take you there. The bus stop close to the venue is Skt. Knuds Torv (Ryesgade/Åboulevarden), further reducing any travel worries.

Menu: Pedersens Pølser specializes in Danish hot dogs and sausages. The hot dogs are served in a classic white bun, complete with pickles, crispy onions, ketchup, mustard, and remoulade sauce. Apart from the classic sausage, you’ll find special variations like the French hot dog, cheese sausage, and the extra-long giant sausage.

For vegetarian patrons, Pedersens Pølser offers an excellent vegetarian sausage option, ensuring everyone can enjoy the quintessential Danish hot dog experience.

What to Expect: Expect a line, especially during lunch hours, when a visit to Pedersens Pølser becomes a social event for the local office crowd. But don’t be deterred – the staff is efficient and cheerful, and the queue MOVES quickly.

Equally suited for a quick snack or a casual meal, the surroundings offer clean and uncomplicated outdoor seating. The atmosphere at Pedersens Pølser thrives on simplicity, warm service, and, most importantly, the aroma of mouth-watering pølser grilling.
