Once apon a time, there was a little Danish city that gave birth to the most famous fairytale writer in the world. Yes, Mr Hans Christian Andersen hails from the city of Odense in Denmark, with its characterful old streets, inspiring museums and strong cycling culture. Come explore Odense and find your own happy ever after.
We couldn't be more excited...from summer 2021, Odense will be home to a brand new museum all about Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tales, from The Little Mermaid to The Ugly Duckling, full of interactive exhibits and surrounded by magical gardens.
Odense's top attractions include a fairytale castle, its modern harbour and its cycling culture. It's a pretty green place too, with 120 parks and 250 playgrounds.
