What you can see in one day - for art enthusiasts

Photo: Johan Joensen

Odense offers several high class artattractions - visit e.g. Gallery Brandts, Filosoffen, Fyns Grafiske Værksted and many more. The Gallery Quarter at Ny Vestergade/Søndergade is definitely worth a visit. And if you have time, you can visit Jens Galschiøt's workshop to the north of Odense.

Since the distances in Odense are very short you can reach a lot in one day, but few of us enjoy running between our art fixes, so I would recommend that you settle for one or two museums/galleries and then plan your route around the city so that it includes the sculptures or street artworks you would like to see.

If you would like to follow a recommended route around the city centre, you can choose to walk in H.C. Andersen's Footsteps or focus on our fairy tale sculptures.

The Gallery Quarter

Between Vesterbro and the river, you will find two small streets; Søndergade and Ny Vestergade. It could be a coincidence, but in this area, you will find no fewer than four galleries - and where the two streets meet, you will find Art Gallery Filosoffen, which shows Danish as well as international artists.
