Denmark // Funen //


Named after Odin, chief of the pagan gods, Odense (pronounced Own-suh) is over a thousand years old. An attractive little place, with a lush location on the River Odense Å, it has an engaging cultural scene and a surprisingly energetic nightlife with a focus on live music: it’s one of Denmark’s most enchanting destinations. The city’s inner core is a network of cobbled streets flanked by photogenic medieval houses.
