Welcome to Odense
This beautiful city is the birthplace of Hans Christian Andersen. Odense, which is the 3rd largest city in Denmark, is one of the oldest cities in the country. The city centre (the old part of the town) consists mostly of old historic buildings. It is a cultural and historic centre in Denmark, and home to a lot of museums.
In the years 1935-1944 the largest Danish observation tower ever built (the 177 meters tall Odinstårn) stood in Odense, but it was destroyed by a small group of Dansih nazi supporters during World War II.
