Learn about H.C. Anderson, Scandinavian art, and Viking history
Named after the ruler of the Norse gods, Odin, Odense is rich in history, culture, and charm—all easily accessible from our well-situated hotel. Pay homage to hometown hero Hans Christian Andersen by visiting his childhood home, perusing a museum devoted to his fairy tales, and scoping out the manor houses and castles that inspired his writings on the Hans Christian Andersen Trail. Experience life as Andersen did in the 19th century at the open-air Funen Village, visit Scandinavia’s largest railway museum, and admire a spectacular collection of classical and modern art, photography, and film at Brandts, a textile factory turned art museum. You can also explore Viking ships, buildings, and artifacts at The Viking Museum Ladby, tour the well-preserved Egeskov Castle surrounded by a moat and historical gardens, or sample delicious street food at Storms Pakhus. If you’re a cyclist, more than 540 kilometers of bicycle paths and free city bikes await.
