Removals to Odense, Denmark: Living in Odense
Odense is the third largest city in Denmark and has nearly 200,000 inhabitants living in the metropolitan area. The 1,000 year old city is full of old world charm and, although it is the oldest in Denmark, it is perhaps best known as the birthplace of world renowned author and poet, Hans Christian Andersen.
Odense certainly has magical appeal as there are many beautiful sites in and around the city, including picturesque streets with 15th and 16th century buildings. Many sites are attributed to the city's most famous resident, including sculptures and monuments dedicated to the author. Part of the house where he was supposedly born has been turned into a museum housing documents, drawings and furniture that once belonged to the fairytale writer.
As well as being characterised by interesting architecture and rich culture, Odense is also a very modern city with plenty to offer including a cafe culture, lively night life and great shopping facilities. If you like to splash out every now and again, most of the shopping is centred around the Vestergade but head 2.5 miles out of the city centre and you will find Rosengaardcentret, Denmark's largest shopping centre, which has more than 150 different shops.
If you are moving here to take up a new job, Odense is also home to several big industries including the country's largest shipyard, as well as the Albany Brewery and Denmark's national TV company, TV 2. The location of Odense, on the island of Funen, is considered by many Danes to be the centre of Denmark which makes it a great destination for national conventions and conferences.
Removals to Odense, Denmark: Places to Visit
If you are moving to Odense, you will never be short of things to do, as Denmark's oldest city has plenty of attractions including: a castle, churches, a cathedral, museums, art galleries - and even a zoo! It would be impossible to mention all Odense's attractions here, but we have put together some of the most popular places to go if you are thinking of visiting or moving here permanently.
The Zoo is Odense's top attraction and receives almost half a million visitors a year. It is open all year round and it is considered one of the best zoo's in Denmark. Many visitors like the penguin section best, but you can also see lions, tigers, goats and you can even feed a giraffe!
Odense's second most visited attraction is Funen Village, an open air museum with 25 traditional Danish buildings, mainly dating from the 18th and 19th century. Time appears to stand still as staff dress up in period costume which brings the whole 'village' to life.
Denmark's 40-year-old railway museum draws nearly 100,000 visitors a year and is the largest museum of its type in Scandinavia. It has 50 engines and railway carriages on 20 tracks and a steam train runs in the school holidays.
As expected, another popular attraction is Hans Christian Anderson's childhood home, which attracts thousands of visitors a year and is a must see when you move to Odense. However, if castles are more your thing, 20 miles or so from the city centre is one of Europe's best preserved moated castles, Egeskov Castle, which also counts a maze, car museum, toy museum and a beautiful park among its attractions.
