Hot Dog Carts Nyhavn?

We have a bit of a tight turnaround between our arrival at the airport and meeting friends for a boat ride in Copenhagen.

Is it true that there are hot dog carts on every corner? If this holds true for Nyhavn, I'm thinking it would mean a quick and easy lunch on the go.

We have a senior in our group, so I try to keep our walking to well-planned routes.

"On every corner" would be an exaggeration, but you can easily find one in the city centre.

I can't remember if there's one/some at Nyhavn, as I wouldn't normally go there.

I would recommend trying DØP (but not if it means you'll have to do a big detour) http://www.døp.dk/en/Default.aspx

We were just there and saw some, but not "one on every corner".

There is one in Nyhavn not far from Kgs. Nytorv, and close to the departure point of the harbor cruise.

Before we went to Denmark, I saw a few videos on hot dog carts and thought that they must be everywhere. Wrong. We spent 8 nights in Copenhagen and I think I saw two. Did not eat from one so can't give review but they looked like long thin hot dogs. I certainly would not go out of my way for a hot dog!

I WOULD absolutely go out out of my way for a Danish hotdog!! Best in the world. Yes, there is a stand right next to the boat departures in Nyhavn. There are many stands all along Strøget. The stands are an affordable option for great eating. They are all good- of course some are better than others. I personally think the one in the City Hall Square is the best.
