Odense, located on the northern part of the island of Fyn, is an ancient city and was a sacred pagan site during pre-historic times. In 1247, Odense was burnt to the ground during a royal rivalry. Despite this, some buildings survived until the modern times. Today, Odense is the third largest city in Denmark and an official “bicycle city”.
Odense offers you a rich mix of historical periods and attractions such as museums and castles, but your kids will love it even more. This is a city of Hans Christian Andersen and his fairy tales.
