The Funen Village, Odense
(4.6/5 based on 180+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Is the reconstruction of a village and tells the history and evolution of the city of odense, can improve the exposure and in the orientation of the visit. How far is it to walk from the Center, but you can go by bike or by bus. It's not a must.
