Welcome to Odense

Hometown of Hans Christian Andersen

Odense is a cultural and historical city where you can sense the city's long history clearly. Hans Christian Andersen was born in Odense, and his lively imagination continues to inspire the city. In Odense you can go walking in H.C. Andersen's footsteps through the historic district and sense the life of the city 200 years ago.

The inspiration can also be felt in the many annual festivals that create an exciting and inspiring city all year round. However, Odense is also a vibrant and urban city, where you have the opportunity to take part in the good local life, where you can enjoy the cozy atmosphere, taste the vibrant local food scene or go for walks in one of the city's many green spots.
