    I Jylland, i det mindste, siger man "polterabend" - ligesom paa tysk.

    The same as google translate gave me. But abend is obviously night and what would Polter mean? My Danish online dictionary doesn't have it

    It's polterabend in Copenhagen as well, and I'm pretty sure throughout the country.

    It's an imported word, which is why you can't find its parts in the dictionary. Wikipedia has a page on the topic, including etymology. Note that the linked English page describes a rather different use of the same word.
