Odense is located on the island of Funen, right in the heart of Denmark, and is the country’s third largest city with 200,000 inhabitants. The city is one of Denmark’s oldest, granted town rights in the year 988, and was originally named Odins Vé as a place of worship for the Nordic god Odin. It was once the site of a Viking ring fortress on the banks of the Odense River. Due to this rich history, it has been a favourite destination for visitors for centuries. Today, it is first and foremost known as the home town of the celebrated author Hans Christian Andersen.
Odense is full of charming high streets, lots of museums and activities, Odense Zoo, lovely green parks and much more. Hans Christian Andersen was born in Odense and you can still visit the house where he was born. Odense is also a great city for a city break. Visit the harbour, the Historic Quarter, our Latin Quarter or - for something completely different - Fruens Bøge (a wooded area by the river in the southern part of the city center).
If history is more your thing, we have several museums and attractions each with their own specialty from 18th century village life in Denmark to Viking Age in Odin's Odense and Cold War at the Bunker Museum. For art aficionados Brandt's is a must see. The gallery is located in the Latin Quarter and always hosts several exhibitions at once.
