H. C. Andersen's Odense
Go on a wondrous journey through Hans Christian Andersen’s Odense. Visit the poet’s birth- and childhood homes or the Hans Christian Andersen Museum. If you need an even bigger dose of the poet, fear not. There is lots more to see.
H. C. Andersen's Childhood Home
From 1807 to 1819 H. C. Andersen lived in one of the three little apartments in this house with his parents. The house became a museum in 1930 and here you can experience several of his original manuscripts and diaries. One of the living rooms houses a small exhibition which shows the poet’s childhood in Odense.
Take a trip back in time and experience the authentic city environment from the 19th century, where Hans Christian Andersen ran around and played as a child. Feel the history in the narrow streets, on the cobblestones, in the courtyards behind the houses and in the exhibitions build by Museum Odense.
