Odense — 6 nights

The capital of the island of Funen, Odense represents the birthplace of Hans Christian Andersen, who penned such classics as "The Little Mermaid" and "The Ugly Duckling." Denmark's third-largest city proudly displays its link to the famous writer with museums, sculptures, and public art installations dedicated to Andersen and his stories.
Explore Odense's surroundings by going to Svendborg (Valdemars Slot, Naturama, &more), CLAY Museum of Ceramic Art Denmark (in Middelfart) and Fredericia (Madsby Parken & Fredericia Vold). Next up on the itinerary: step into the grandiose world of Egeskov Castle, see the interesting displays at The Funen Village, contemplate the long history of Hans Christian Andersens Childhood Home, and test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms.
