Odense, Funen's millennium-old center, is Denmark's third-largest city, a vibrant town in the midst of a massive transformation. The home of fairy-tale writer extraordinaire Hans Christian Andersen, there is a plethora of Andersen-related activities, such as museums, a children's center, and statues representing his most famous stories. Even pedestrian crossing lights have Andersen silhouetted in them.
Visitors to Odense from May to October will have the opportunity to participate in thrilling cycling trips known as Cycle-taxi tours, which are offered several times a week for visitors. Tourist information bureaus give detailed information on the timing and location of each trip.
