Odense - Home town to H.C. Andersen

Welcome to Odense, Fyn

You already met her….


But do you know that not that far away there is a city- Odense- filled with sculptures depicting fairy tale characters from H.C. Andersen fairytales- and a few of the author himself ?

Hans Christian Andersen was born in Odense in 1805. His birthplace is the iconic yellow cornerhouse that you see in all the postcards and is a must see. Clike here for more information. 

HC Andersen's House


Odense is one of Denmark's oldest cities, and the third largest, and everywhere you can feel the touch of history. The historic quarter sports colourful row houses, cobble stone streets and many fine examples of half-timbered houses. Many museums will tell you more about the history of the city.
