What is this tour about?

It is no surprise, in Odense we are very proud of the famous writer, who took his first steps in our city. All around the streets of Odense, you will find small tokens or large sculptures depicting characters or scenes from his fairy tales. Odense is after all the hometown of Hans Christian Andersen.

Go for a stroll in the parks, streets and alleys; you will find anything from Thumbelina and the one-legged tin soldier to monuments in the writer’s honour. This tour will, if you find them all, take you through the city and past several of the city’s larger attractions.

Remember to look around you along the way. Perhaps you will find the traffic light with Hans Christian Andersen. We have a feeling it will be close to the Seahorse. ;)
