- Tamara, our Danish WunderWalk ambassador says, the world famous Danish author H.C. Andersen (of The Little Mermaid, The Ugly Duckling, and The Emperor’s New Clothes) grew up in Odense – an idyllic city on the island of Funen, Denmark. Odense is an ideal size to explore on foot and on a sunny day the colourful houses light up in the sun, as though they have been taken out of one H.C. Andersen’s fairy tales. Follow the cobbled streets to 11 special places.
The walk starts at 1)Odense Town Hall, the large and majestic building in the heart of Odense city. From here walk to 2)Odense Castle where Andersen’s mother worked as a washerwoman and Andersen played with the other servant children. Enjoy the vastness of this untraditional castle! Along the way you’ll see 3)Funen’s Art Museum and 4)Odense Theatre.
The next stop is H.C. Andersen’s birthplace, the now 5)iconic yellow house on the corner, which belonged to the poorest part of Odense back in the 1800s. From here continue along the picturesque stone laid streets to 6)Blackfriars Square were Andersen had his artistic debut as an extra in a play. Although there is no theatre there anymore, every Wednesday and Saturday the square is filled with busy grocers selling anything from newly caught fish to freshly made Danish “rygeost” (smoked curd cheese). To taste a few Danish culinary delicacies, visit 7)Grønttorvet on square. As the oldest restaurant in Odense it offers authentic “smørrebrød” (buttered rye bread with various toppings) and without which you cannot claim to have visited Denmark.
After a good lunch, continue walking south to the 8)Charity School where H.C. Andersen was a pupil. Admire its half-timbered construction. As you walk further south down the narrow street, you’ll reach 9)Odense River and the washing site where Andersen’s mother washed clothes. Odense River offers stunning natural beauty and sports activities such as canoeing and perhaps you’ll see an ugly duckling. As you follow the river you will pass by 10) a large bronze statue of H.C. Andersen. Heading north again, leaving the river, you’ll reach the famous author’s childhood 11)home, the last stop.
Andersen lived here until he was 14 when he left to Copenhagen to try his luck as an actor. By the time you reach the last stop you should feel wonderful. As Andersen himself said "life itself is the most wonderful fairy tale".
