Green City

The city is filled with gardens and parks, trees flank the major roads and Odense River snakes straight through the center. We believe that all the greenery helps create the good and relaxed atmosphere that characterizes Odense.

“Just living is not enough," said the butterfly, "one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower.” Hans Christian Andersen

Fyn er også kendt som Danmarks have og Odense bliver ofte kaldt Fyns hovedstad. Byen er fuld af haver og parker, træer smykker gaderne og Odense Å slynger sig gennem centrum. De mange grønne områder bidrager til den afslappede atmosfære, der kendetegner Odense. Natur og grønt er godt for øjnene og sjælen.

Vi håber at I i løbet af jeres besøg vil besøge en af parkerne, sejle på Åen eller endda besøge den forhenværende losseplads, Stige Ø, der i dag er et fantastisk rekreativt område med vandre- og mountainbike stier, legepladser og shelters.

Parks and Gardens

Fyn is known as Denmark's garden and Odense is often spoken of as the capital of Fyn. The city is filled with gardens and parks, trees flank the major roads and Odense River snakes its way through the city centre. We believe that all the greenery is a big part of the calm and relaxed feeling that is typical of Odense - green is good for the soul.

During your visit we hope you will enjoy our parks, go sailing on the river and maybe even visit our former dump site, Stige Ø, which is now a flourishing recreational area with hiking and mountainbike trails, playgrounds and shelters.
