TOUR DESCRIPTION

Details

From the tourist office, we pass the city hall and Hans Christian Andersens childhood. From there we move on to crossing the stream, and passing the place where a Viking fortress built by Harald Bluetooth in 980 once was. The beautiful Fairytale garden lies nearby the Cathedral, where King Knud is buried in the crypt, in which there is public access in the opening hours of the church. On the run, we pass the Secular Convent for noblewomen, and continue running through the old city, with cobbled streets towards the birthplace of Hans Christian Andersen. After a 1 km run, the fantastic harbour is in sight, and we can say hello to the statue of Hans Christian Andersen in the water nearby the public harbor pool. By the harbor, you can experience some of the most vital changes of the transformation of Odense.

Here are exclusive apartments, idyllic houseboats and the North Atlantic house representing Faroe Island, Iceland and Greenland. We run along the canal, crossing the newly finished, modern bridge called Odins Bro. Heading back to the city center we run along the man-made canal, with the secret inner harbor only for motor boats. Just 500 meter further, the hill that once housed the castle Næsbyhoved, which was built more than 800 years ago, and confirmed the power of the king is towering in front of us. It was ruined in 1534 after a riot, by the bourgeois of Odense. Later a restaurant opened, and was very popular by the time of Hans Christian Andersen. We cross the railway via the modern bridge called “bridge of the city” or in Danish Byens bro. Through the park Kongens Have we run along the Odense Castle from 1815 and the City Theater. Back in the mall, we return to the tourist office.

This trip give an impression of the cozy city, with green parks and the waterfront, and includes the must see in the historic Odense.
