In the Footsteps of Hans Christian Andersen

The route starts at the house in Hans Jensen's Stræde, where he was born, in what was then one of the poorest neighborhoods, continues through the historic quarter, makes a detour down to the river and returns to the city centre.

The route is just under 2½ km long in total. If you would like help navigating you can find this tour on the free web app Motes
