The city of Odense

Odense is the third-largest city in Denmark and boasts some of the greatest cultural attractions on the island of Fyn. Odense is per- haps best known as the city where author Hans Christian Andersen was born and grew up. He certainly made his mark on his home town, but in addition to his childhood home, Odense offers numerous tourist attractions such as zoo, museums and art galleries as well as possibilities to explore old castles and mansions on the island of Fyn.
Odense has all the charm and attraction of a small town, combined with a dash of big-city pulse. Odense has a wide and diverse shopping environment. The everyday shops line the pedestrian streets, while the small side streets and alleys are home to tempting specialist shops with international labels and leading Danish Design brands. This is also where you will find the relaxing café lifestyle with its charming al fresco ambience.

The island of Fyn is known as “the Garden of Denmark” on ac- count of its fertile soil. This gives rise to a wealth of seasonal pro- duce and specialties, which you can enjoy in Odense’s numerous and varied cafés and restaurants.

Odense is only about 11⁄2 hours away from Copenhagen Airport (frequent direct train connec- tions). It is therefore easy to com- bine your trip with a short visit to the capital of Denmark.
