This sculpture is one of the most photographed sculptures or indeed locations in Odense, I think you can see why. This sculpture is a selfie invitation If I ever saw one.


The Old Town Quarter

Take a selfie in front of your favorite colorful house in the Old Town Quarter where H.C. Andersen lived. The streets are lined with quaint and charming colorful houses so take your pick.

Another one of our favorite selfie spots is the little yellow house where Hans Christian Andersen was born. This is a significant historical spot in Odense that you don’t want to miss.

Odense’s newly revitalized harbor is ideal for taking selfies or capturing a gorgeous photo of the sunset with the backdrop of the new impressive residential buildings.
