Guided Tour and Boating on Odense River in the Wake of H C Andersen

Odense River boat

Hans Christian Andersen spent the greater part of his childhood near the little river Odense Å. On this guided tour, you will learn how this area looked in Hans Christian Andersen's days and how it inspired our renowned fairytale writer and poet. And to cap it all, we finish by boating on Odense Å.

We start at Vaskepladsen, the washing place, where Hans Christian Andersen's mother did the laundry for the high society in Odense. On we go, across Eventyrhaven, Garden of Fairytales and Munkemose, Moor of the Monks to the Shipping Company Odense Åfart. From here, we go on a nice boating trip on Odense river, past the villas and mansions in Hunderup and past the Zoo, all the way to the forests Hunderup Skov and Fruens Bøge, The Beeches of Our Lady.

During the trip, I will tell you about the sights and connect it all to the life and times of Hans Christian Andersen.
