The Historic Quarter in Odense

Some of the city's oldest houses are gathered in the neighborhood around Overgade and the Nedergade. Some are located at their original addresses while others are reconstructed at the City Museum Møntergården, located in Overgade 48. In several places in this beautifully preserved part of Odense you can look into the courtyards in the old old merchant houses, while the contrast to the old poor school makes an impression.The medieval spirit can really be perceived in the old cobbled district - especially in the colorful Nedergade, where the crooked and tidy facades of half-timbered houses tell a story about Odense over the centuries in their very own way.

If you follow the steep Paaskestræde down towards Odense Å, the preserved laundry spot in the middle of the river also helps to keep history alive, even being located just next to a modern city center in rapid development.
