In the Footsteps of Hans Christian Andersen
It is almost impossible to visit Odense without listening to some of the interesting stories about the famous fairytale writer Hans Christian Andersen who was born in Odense.
A guided tour of the city of Odense in the footsteps of Hans Christian Andersen is an obvious starting point for getting to know the city centre and Odense.
During this guided tour of the old city centre, you will pass the birthplace of Hans Christian Andersen and see the spot where his mother used to work as a laundress. We will visit the Cathedral, Odense Domkirke, where he was confirmed and see the place where the old theatre used to be and he first fell in love with the world of theatre. These and other places in Odense played an integral part in Hans Christian Andersen's life and in forming him.
