More things to do in Odense
Odense has an antique market, one of Denmark’s biggest shopping centres, Rosengaardcenteret, and Fyn’s largest market every Wednesday and Saturday. Head to the area outside the concert hall to sample fresh farm produce from across the island of Fyn, as people have done in Odense for centuries, and if you're really keen to get in the Hans Christian Andersen spirit, look out for hindbærsnitte in the local bakeries - apparently these raspberry biscuits were his favourites! Odense’s street food market, Storms Pakhus, is also a popular place to grab some grub and get to know the locals.
Cultural highlights in Odense
Head to Odense in August to experience the highly-respected Odense International Film Festival and the fairytale magic of Hans Christian Andersen Festival. If you’re bringing kids, or are just a big one yourself, Odense Zoo is open 365 days a year and October is when Harry Potter fans descend on Odense for the Magic Days Festival.
