In the city centre, within walking distance of the old town, you can explore Danish railway history and Denmark's (and especially Funen's) antiquity and recent history, visit Kramboden in Nedergade and much more. If you are up for a slightly longer walk, you can also dive into Funen's military history and visit a bunker from the Cold War era.
