Especially in connection with the light rail construction, beautiful new buildings have sprung up in the centre of Odense. When walking along the light rail line from Vestergade towards Hans Christian Andersen's House, imagining the four-lane road that used to be here is almost impossible.

Carl Nielsen District

Odense's new city district is part of the ambitious urban transformation, where the city is now more open and the entire city centre is now connected with new, beautiful, organic, sharp and different shapes with courtyard environments and new business premises.


Port of Odense - beautiful nature and industrial charm

The Port of Odense was built in the early 1800s, and much has happened since then. After more than 150 years as a busy industrial port, the harbour is now being transformed into a new, exciting area with a burgeoning cultural life.
