Hotels in Odense


Let Odense cast its spell on you! Nestled in the heart of the city overlooking its quaint cobblestone streets, the luxury Radisson Blu H.C. Andersen Hotel is just a stone’s throw from the Hans Christian Andersen Museum and great shopping. For golf enthusiasts, there are numerous 18-hole golf courses nearby, while the fascinating 16th century Egeskov Castle is just half an hour away.

Funen is called Denmark’s honey pot, and the honey itself is Odense. The city is one of Denmark’s oldest and it is not surprising that the long existence and historical significance has left its mark on this city, which until the late 1800s was Denmark’s second largest with 6,000 inhabitants. The current population is almost 200,000.

Today Odense is known worldwide as Hans Christian Andersen’s birthplace, and tourists from around the world flock here to see H.C. Andersen’s house. As a guest at the Radisson Blu H.C. Andersen Hotel, you are staying only a few steps away – you simply won’t find a better location.

Furthermore, the King’s Garden and Odense Castle, which has played a significant role in the city’s history, are only a few minutes’ walk from the hotel. Founded as a monastery, the castle was taken over by the King after the reformation and used as accommodation for the monarch of the time. In the 1700s, it was rebuilt in its present form. In the so-called Governor period during the early 1800s, the successive crown princes were governors of Funen and Langeland using the castle as their domicile. Today the castle is used by the municipality’s cultural administration.

With the industrialization in the mid-1800s, the city grew and several large companies were formed: Thomas B. Thrige’s factories, the Albani breweries and Odense Steel Shipyard.

Odense stream, Funen’s longest stream, runs through the city to Odense Fjord where the harbour is currently being developed into an area for residential and commercial use, and you can already take a stroll along the newly built promenade. However, there is still room for the ships. Speaking of Odense stream – did you know that this is the stream you sing about in the traditional Danish song ‘Sejle op ad åen’ [Sailing up the stream]?

In the 1960s, Odense underwent a dramatic change with the construction of the street Thomas B. Thriges Gade, which according to many destroyed the city and divided it into two parts. 2008 saw the equally drastic decision of closing the busy street and transforming the area into a completely new district with housing, businesses and retail stores. The project is expected to be completed in 2020, and while it’s in progress the city’s creative and imaginative citizens are using it for temporary activities. So stop by and follow the exciting project up close.
