Odense is a city on the island of Funen, which is part of Denmark. It is the 3rd largest city in the country (home to about 165,000 citizens), and a common place for travelers and backpackers traveling Scandinavia to visit. It is an old city (over 1,000 years), with a vibrant nightlife and a rich cultural heritage.

Odense is served by its own airport (Odense Airport) as well as many other forms of transport, including buses and trains. The trip from Copenhagen is about 2 hours with a train. The city central itself is compact, and best traveled by foot. There is a very interesting transport option in the city however, and that is the river boats. It is a highly recommended experience to try at least once. There are also local buses available if you wish to head out further from the city center.

While visiting an Odense hostel, there are many interesting things to see. The cultural history is well experienced by visiting the many museums the city has to offer. The main attraction is probably the Hans Christian Andersen House, which is dedicated to the great writer. The Odense Zoo is also a common place to visit (and can be reached with a river boat).

Hostels in Odense are of good quality. The prices of the hostels vary greatly and it is highly recommended to book ahead. Travelers in groups will get a better price because you can book a bigger room together. Odense hostel staff are a great source of information and it is recommended to ask them for tips & tricks, and about what is going on in the city at the time of your stay.

I fell in love with Odense.


I have been in Odense for five months. It was the best days of my life. I want to go there again!


Odense is a pretty little city with very friendly Danes. They all speak English and are happy to do so, unlike some other places I've visited. The Hans Christian Anderson museum is pretty interesting. You won't learn much about the fairy tales, but you'll get a feel for the man himself. He was pretty amazing! The streets of Odense are beautifully maintained. Watch out for bikes, there are thousands! Walk or bike alongside the river in summertime, it's beautiful! In August Odense hosts the 'Odense International Film Festival'. Most films are either in English, or have subtitles. And it's FREE! In a nutshell, I found Odense well worth the visit.
