The island of Funen (Fyn) is known as Denmark's garden and Odense is often called the capital of Funen. The city is filled with gardens and parks, trees line the main roads and Odense River snakes right through the city centre. We think this is partly responsible for the relaxed atmosphere and general good mood - green is good for you.
During your visit we hope you will enjoy our parks, take a trip on the river cruise and maybe even visit our reclaimed landfill, Stige Island, that today is used as a picnic spot with hiking and mountain bike trails, playgrounds and shelter spots.
Odense is affectionately known as the green capital of Funen because of all our lovely parks and the river, that winds its way through the city centre.
