The Danish way of Celebrating with "Red Sausages"
The Danish way of celebrating a final event or other types of festive partying is by enjoying one of the trendiest national fast food dishes in Denmark - the "red sausage and warm bun" - evolved from the everywhere present mobile sausage charts from 1921 - which is since considered by generations of Danes and obsessive sausage lovers as a very native and traditional Danish finger and street food delicacy with the delicious and tasty “red sausage” flavour. Cold chocolate milk (Congo beer) and foamy cold draft beer (kold bajer) is the preferred drinks to enjoy with a combo sausage set - which is a part of a complete Danish sausage menu at the Danish “Pølsevogn” - and at other cheerful and happy gatherings.
Red Sausage & "Remoulade"

“Remoulade” at Sausage Stands
Tourist visiting the “Pølsevogn” -
also called "Cafe Fodkoldt" (Cafe Cold Feet) very often select the yellow topping and dressing called “Remoulade” - which is a well-liked supplement to their sausage selection of any type. As a Client once said at a Danish Sausage Stand - when tasting "Remoulade" with the Red Sausage: "Oh Boy - what a fantastic tasting experience and delicious combination".

Fast Food tradition since 1921
The out door "Sausage Stand" - serving so called "street food" or "finger food" is a fundamental part of the Danish Cultural Heritage and has been a cultural institution - and nationwide fast food tradition since 1921 - as the first outdoor mobile "Pølsevogn" (Sausage Stand) was established and a reality in 1921 in Copenhagen - with the permission by Copenhagen's council in 1920 - to serve the first warm red sausage "Rød Pølse" in Copenhagen - together with a lukewarm bun.

"Pølsevogn" - At the Airport's Arrival Hall
As a must - a very important sausage stand is placed very near the baggage reclaim area at the airport’s arrival hall - so the Danes quite quickly - and after many days abroad - can smell the familiar aroma from the sausage stand - and then satisfy their craving and appetite by enjoying their indispensable and delicious juicy and porky “Rød Pølse” (Red Sausage) - while waiting for their luggage.
