The Danish Cottage in Balboa Park



The House of Denmark is one of the cottages in the International Village in Balboa Park in San Diego, California. Located off President’s Way between the Organ Pavilion and the Air & Space museum, the village was originally built for the 1935 California Pacific International Exposition. See this historic flyer for more details about the Exposition.


The House of Denmark is also an organization that calls the cottage its home. We are a group of Danes, Danish-Americans, their families, and others with ties to Denmark who come together to celebrate our heritage, culture and holidays.


The House of Denmark joins 32 other “House” organizations representing different countries to form the House of Pacific Relations, which acts as the government of the International Village and works to promote multicultural goodwill and understanding through educational and cultural programs.


The House of Denmark is usually open on Saturday and Sunday afternoons between 11:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. The address is 666 Pan American Road West, San Diego, CA, 92101. Please come by and enjoy some Danish hospitality.

  1. Hi Daniel,
    Duo Lingo is a good place to start learning and get familiar with the the sounds. But attending a class would certainly be helpful to you. We have offered Danish Lesson in the House of Denmark before but stopped for a while but it may be time to start back up again.

    I am not the teacher but I will help you to get in contact with the teacher to see if she is still offering to teach. Please send me an email at

    Oda Audish
    Vice President of the House of Denmark
