The tour will start in the city center, at the Tourist office and the city hall. This is where the fairy tale begins, Where we will discover the places that inspired Hans Christian Andersen to write many of his stories such as The Emperors new clothes, The little Mermaid, The Nightingale and The Ugly Duckling. Do the children know the fairytales? We can take a challenge while running.
We start to run to the Cathedral of Odense, where King Knud was burried in 1095, and his skeleton it is still to be seen in the crypt if you dare. Hans Christian Andersen was confirmed in this church. From the Church we move on to the fairy tale garden, and maybe we can discover a fairy tale here. The running tour continues to the old part of town, where among other cozy houses is the birthplace of Hans Christian Andersen and Lotzes garden with the museum of H.C Andersen.
If the children miss their school, we will pass the school of Hans Christian Andersen located in the old poorhouse. At the marketplace is the possibility to take a photo together with Hans Christian Andersen. Then it is time to see the childhood home of Hans Christian Andersen. Is this a place for children? We move on to the stream, where the mother of Hans Christian Andersen washed the family clothes. On the way to the hospital where Hans Christian Andersen granddad was admitted as a madman I 1823, we pass some of the cozy malls of Odense, before we returns to the tourist office.
