Travel & Stay

Welcome to Odense, Denmark

Odense is the third biggest city in Denmark, and is placed right at the heart of the island of Funen.

Probably most well-known worldwide as the birthplace of the renowned fairy-tale author, Hans Christian Andersen. And to Umbracians, of course, Umbraco and Codegarden!
