In the Footsteps of Hans Christian Andersen

Hans Christian Andersen wore very large shoes – size 47 (12/13 in the UK/US). We follow his footprints and tell you about the sights we pass along the way.

Walking through the old parts of the town, you will hear the many fascinating stories of the fairy tale writer’s early life here in Odense. We’ll go through the narrow cobblestone streets down to the river where his mother did her customers’ laundry and to the Fairytale Garden near St. Canute’s Church (the Cathedral). Barring any events going on there, we’ll go inside the Cathedral.

Tour Start: In front of City Hall or as arranged.
Duration: 2 hours.
Distance: Approximately 3 km, 1.9 miles. Dress appropriately for the weather as you’ll be outside.
Fee: DKK 1,200
