Take a look at our take on a gastronomic weekend stay in Odense, complete with recommendations for restaurants, activities and attractions. We hope you have a tasty stay and have fun exploring the local gastro scene with your friends or family.

Friday

Dinner

Start your weekend with a dinner in one of the city's fantastic restaurants. Restaurant Vår and Restaurant Pasfall are both gourmet restaurants, well worth a visit and a great way to kick off your culinary adventure. 

End the evening with drinks

After an exquisite dinner, take advantage of the streets of Odense and enjoy the vibrant urban atmosphere, which is also found in the late evening hours. We recommend you visit one of the city's wine bars or microbreweries like Anarchist Food & Beer Lab and Amys Bar & Winehouse with cozy atmosphere and a large selection of different beers. Odense is also home to several wine bars worth a visit, including Lalou Wine Bar and S'vineriet Vinapotek.

Saturday

Breakfast

If you skip breakfast at the hotel, there are many good options for brunch in the city. For example, visit Cafe Fleuri, Cafe Nouvelle or Cafe Unika, where you will experience a cozy authentic atmosphere and be presented with beautiful unique brunch dishes.

Go exploring

After breakfast, We recommend you take a walk through the pedestrian street of Odense. Here you will find lots of small unique shops. Take a walk through Brandt's Passage, where you will find everything from clothing to ceramics and art and also stop by Vintapperstræde. Here you can take a break at Christian Firtal and enjoy one of the beer specialist's many beers.

Afternoon delights

If you are interested in farm fresh and delicious ingredients and have access to a car, we recommend a trip to one of Funen's many small food producers. Here you can experience how the local food producers perfect their products and and aim for the highest quality. On your drive through the Funen countryside you will also pass through beautiful scenic areas. For example, visit Svanninge Bakker or the area around Kerteminde Beach.

Dinner

As you travel through the Funen country side, you can end the day with a gastronomic experience that you will not soon forget. If your trip has brought you to the south of Funen, we recommend an evening at Falsled Kro. Here you can have an fantastic evening in a cozy and authentic setting, with superb food and wine. If, on the other hand, you have moved towards Kerteminde, a visit to Rudolf Mathis would be an obvious choice for a great and tasty evening. Here you can dine overlooking the water and enjoy beautiful dishes of freshly caught seafood delicacies of all kinds.

Sunday

Brunch

Finish off your gastronomic weekend with an exquisite brunch atSortebro Kro, which is beautifully located by the Funen Village. Here you will be served a delicious brunch with seasonal ingredients. An alternative could be a visit to Restaurant Nordatlanten at Odense Harbor, where you can enjoy a brunch with specialties from all over Scandinavia.
