Odense is full of history, and during the summer you have the opportunity to learn more on one of the summer city walks. It is more than 1000 years ago that Odense was first mentioned in writing, but the city is much older than that and Odense could be Denmark's oldest settlement.

Guided tours

The Town Hall was built with strong inspiration from the City Hall in Siena, Italy and offers many exciting stories and beautiful art. Go on the tour and enter the otherwise closed off areas of the town hall.

City Walks

From a bishop's seat to a big city - since 988 a lot has happened in Odense. More than 1000 years of urban history covers both big events and small fun anecdotes. Join the summer tours and dive straight into the your favorite topic.
