If you Google Odense -Wikipedia will tell you that this was the city Hans Christian Andersen was born, about the old houses, churches and museeums.
It is also the town where I grew up.
Although I lived a few miles outside the citycentre this was still the place we went to shop, eat, go to the movies and so on.
I could go on and on about what this city i known for, but I would rather show you some of the hidden treasures, the old part of the city, one of the cutest boutiques and my new favourite spot to have coffee and treats.
Pinoc has existed for a few years and is such a cute shop. They carry most of the Danish designers like Day Birger et Mikkelsen and By Malene Birger, but you can also find jewelry, phonecases, bags and if you love interior design this place has the best items.
After a little shopping I like to stop at a café to have lunch or just a little treat in the afternoon.Actually I read recently that the people that live in Odense love to eat out so there are a lot of new restaurants and cafés popping up. whenever a retailstore closes. I guess we like to eat more than to shop?! how did that happen?!
One of the places that I love to visit is Brød – they have the custes little café with coffee and all the Danish treats you can think of.
After a little treat I like to walk through the old cobbled streets away from all the highstreet shops and crowds. This area of the city has a lot of old buildings, shops and galleries.
Like the old shop called Kramboden where I used to go with my grandmother and siblings every vacation to buy candy and look at the old fashioned toys. You can buy everything from old tin, kitchen equipment to toys and candy here.
The houses are the cutest leaning buildings and are very hard to get a hold of. They are often past on from one generation to another.
If you are ever in Denmark this is a special area to visit and also if you want to see where Hans Christian Andersen grew up this is just in the neighbourhood.
Thank you for reading.
