Why choose Odense?

There are many lovely places in Denmark, so why should you go to Odense? And bring your family, boyfriend or friends? If you ask us, the answer is obvious :)

- because Odense is big city fun with manageable distances, because we have the largest concentration of recognized museums outside the capital area, because we are Denmark's greenest big city, because we host fun and impressive events all year round, because we are in the process of reinventing the city center with beautiful hang-outs, a light rail and super bike path - and because Odense is H.C. Andersen's hometown.
