Denmark's Charming Third Largest City

Odense

Denmark’s third largest city, Odense, is often overlooked for its larger siblings Copenhagen and Aarhus, but this cozy city of almost 200,000 is home to great museums like Brandts, an award-winning zoo, and an acclaimed film festival. And of course, you can visit the home of the godfather of fables, Hans Christian Andersen. And if that’s not enough, there are plenty of cafes, cozy restaurants, and even a new city beach within easy reach.
