So it is not hard to travel from Copenhagen to Odense. You can travel from Copenhagen to Odense by train, bus, or car, which prices are ranging between $21-$29, $12-$15, and $23-$35, respectively.

There are also many open-air events going on in Munke Mose Park throughout the year, as it's an easily accessible area of Odense.

4. Klosterhaven - Medicinal Herbs


This is a geometrically shaped monastery garden with many intricate details. Designed in the 1920s by architect I. P. Sorensen, it consists of a small atrium garden, Fratergarden, with spring bulbs and perennials. In the larger part of the garden, it is possible to explore a collection of more than 125 herbs. Some of these herbs are well known for their medicinal uses. The majority of these herbs cannot be found in your typical garden. It also has benches along one side, where you can sit and enjoy a quiet break or eat your lunch. The garden is open at all hours of the day and is free to visit. It is also considered one of the most suitable places to see in Odense, especially for older citizens.

5. Odense Old Town


Some of the city's oldest houses are located within the Old Town, which dates back to medieval times. It is a beautifully preserved part of Odense, where the most powerful and influential citizens had their houses and businesses. The old cobblestone streets and colorful crooked houses are what attract tourists because of its medieval feel. 

6. Hans Christian Andersen's house

11. Vera's Market

Fashionistas should definitely keep an eye on Veras' website for the market's upcoming dates. It's a great way to buy some inexpensive pieces or just spend a relaxed morning rummaging in tonnes of second-hand clothes and accessories. Vera's market takes place every Sunday – at Bispeengbuen during spring and summertime and indoors at Norrebrohallen in the winter. With such a great number of stalls packed with clothes of all styles, it comes as no surprise that visitors leave the place with bags filled with goodies. Make sure to head in early because the place gets super packed. Although going to a flea market may not be on the top of your list of what to do in Odense, I highly recommend checking one out.

Everywhere you can go by bicycle


There are several places to see in Odense, including many quality museums and galleries, pedestrian streets, good restaurants, interesting churches, etc. And all places to visit in Odense are easily accessible by bike! In fact, bikes are taken into consideration just as much as cars. So you'll find bike lanes almost everywhere you choose to explore.
