odense HCA Hus round

The Hans Christian Andersen House (approx. 60-90 minutes)

This museum allows you to see new sides of H.C. Andersen's authorship. Here the focus is not on the person Andersen and his story, but rather on the fairy tales he wrote and his voice. The new museum does not talk about H.C. Andersen, it speaks as H.C. Andersen. https://hcandersenshus.dk/en/


Funen village

The Funen Village (approx. 90 minutes)

The Funen Village is an attraction that shows how people lived and what they did in the 18th and 19th centuries.
