"Take a seat next to H.C.Andersen" Top 5 Page for this destination Odense Local Custom Tip by globetrott

Odense Local Customs: 22 reviews and 63 photos

This is one of the most popular benches in Odense, especially for children, simply because you can take a seat there next to H.C.Andersen (1805 - 1875).
You will find this great bench at the main entrance to the Radisson Hotel, about 150 meters from the birth-house of Hans Christian Andersen.
Next to it there is another funny bench, see it in my last picture, it has real feet to stand on !

    Nice sculpture of HC Anderson, but the seat with the huge feet - rather unusual!
