Odense, Denmark
Explore Denmark's third largest city located on Funen - the garden island, where there’s a lot to see and do!

To begin with Odense is Hans Christian Andersen's native city and you can discover his amazing fairy tale universe by visiting this famous author’s home or the museum created in his honor. Composer Carl Nielsen is another Odense-born celebrity who also contributed greatly to the town’s cultural inheritance. Head to the Carl Nielsen Museum, dedicated to the life and work of Denmark’s most famous composer.

Apart from that you simply can’t miss Brandts which combines an art gallery, the Museum of Photographic Art and Denmark's Media Museum. Odense is also one of Denmark's oldest cities with a history that dates back more than 1000 years to pre-Viking times and offers you a rich mix of historical periods and attractions.

You can explore the stunning Egeskov Castle, Saint Canute's Cathedral and the popular tourist attraction Funen Village - an open-air museum in a reconstructed 19th century village with half-timbered houses.

Moreover this is also the official bicycle city of Denmark with green areas and a large zoo. Last but not least don’t forget to stop at one of Odense's cafés and restaurants which offer fresh produce bought directly from farm shops in the area.
