Shopping and Culture
A walk through the pedestrian street of Odense offers a wealth of small exciting shops and cafes. Walk through Brandt's Passage, where you will find everything from clothing to ceramics and art. Here you will also find a few of the city's museums and the Amphitheater, which is used for events throughout the summer.
Brandt's Passage is a nice place to find lunch or a delicious buffet. Kong Volmer offers Danish sandwiches, Cafe Chino has a delicious brunch and Café Cuckoos Nest offers a large selection of sandwiches and burgers.
Another area with great restaurants is the Vintapper Stræde. Here you will find everything from delicious Italian dishes to a good burger.
Time for attractions
When you are finished with lunch, a visit to Brandts should be at the top of your list. This international art museum offers everything from classic Danish art, to photo exhibitions and sensory exhibitions for children and childish souls.
Another classic in Odense is a boat trip on Odense River. Aafarten and the boat ride take you from the center of the city, along the idyllic river out to Fruens Bøge. Hop off the boat and take a stroll to Velodrome Coffee Shop at Fruens Bøge Station or go down to the meadow and enjoy an ice cream with gorgeous views of the lake.
If you are still in Fruens Bøge, stop by the popular gourmet restaurant Sortebro Kro, situated on the edge of the Funen Village. Here you will have the opportunity to sample some of the best Odense has to offer.
Hop on the river boat to head back to the center of the city. To see the most of the city, we recommend that you cross the city bridge and continue down to the harbor. Here you will find Odense’s street food market, Storms Pakhus. Storms Pakhus is a great place to experience the local vibe. With 24 different food stalls and an outdoor market, Storms Pakhus provides a wide range of culinary experiences.
