Welcome to Odense

 – hometown of Hans Christian Andersen

Odense is rapidly evolving, and if you haven’t visited in the last few years, you’ll be surprised by all the new possibilities. A new H.C. Andersen House, a brand new quarter in the city centre covering the real estate that the enormous 4-lane thoroughfare used to cover, the light rail is running, exciting things are happening at the harbour and much more. 

At the same time, Odense also features cobbled streets and colourful little row houses in the historic quarter, fantastic and sometimes quirky festivals throughout the year and a location in the middle of the island Funen, known for its many castles and manor houses and beautiful scenery.
