4.6
#2 of 16 in Museums in Odense
Specialty Museum Museum
Discover the traditional life of Danish farmers from the time of Hans Christian Andersen at The Funen Village. This open-air museum was founded as a public works project in 1942 during the German occupation. Some 30 original buildings were moved to the museum from various sites in the Funen region. Walk down the village street along half-timbered houses, flower gardens, and fenced enclosures with livestock. With the living history you can experience the atmosphere of a day in the country in the 18th century. Smell beer brewing, watch a young girl helping the mistress in the kitchen, and hear the sound of the blacksmith's hammer.

Where to stay in Odense

Variety is no problem when searching for a place to stay in Odense, the birthplace of Hans Christian Anderson. The city is a transportation hub for the rest of the island, and many of its sights can be seen by foot or bicycle no matter which neighborhood you choose to stay in. There is no shortage of hotels here, though it is more expensive to stay in the city center. For more affordable options, look outside the center, or if you want a prime location, a basic hostel in the city center. If you prefer a more personalized experience, the city boasts a number of guesthouses and family-owned bed and breakfasts.

  • Beautiful museum dedicated to tell the stories and share the atmosphere of a traditional vernacular village of Fun and Denmark in general. Visit all the old farms, pat the animals and talk to the locals. There are also often special events and horse carriage riding. When you are hungry you should visit the inn cafe.
  • Really nice old place
  • Nice place to see how Denmark was during HC Andersens erase.
  • Great village but not so many explanations. I didn't really enjoy the visit but my husband does.
  • Nice place with old buildings and live animals.
