pg
by: Charlie

Hi,
In this ad which is for a business builinding and not a residential property. I would be wary of this ad. I believe the pg refers to "piger" or "girls", so the owner wants to rent to girls only.

I may be wrong but can not see another meaning in this ad.

Mayb someone else has an idea of what the ad refers to.

vh,
Charlie

Pg and floor number
by: Anonymous

Thank you for your reply! Is it a must to have '.' to indicate 1. = first floor etc.. and What about 'Pg.' is it another abbreviation of 'Opg'? Here an example :

Carl Jacobsensvej 16
pg. 16, 4. sal
Valby
2500
Denmark

Hi CN,
The opg means opgang or the floor where the front door to the building is located. Ground floor apartment. Also known as stue etage.

Vaer is just an abbreviation for room or værelse.

Hope that helps.

Charlie

P.S. opg is similiar to 1., 2., 3. which means 1st floor , 2nd floor and 3rd floor. Remember that when in Denmark 1st floor is actually on the 2nd floor. Stue etage is the first floor in Denmark terms

It's true that you don't need the passport to cross the borders but, you do need a passport to identify your self to a police officer if they ask you.
