H.C.Andersen Haven (Eventyrhaven) is a beautiful park located at the area SE of the Odense cathedral.
It was always a big garden with fruits and other useful things for the monks and later a place only for wealthy member if a book club!
When in 1941 the City Council decided to renovate the area around the Town Hall and the Cathedral the park came to life. Some buildings had to be demolished, the park finally opened to the public in 1945.
What we see today is a peaceful relaxing area, we spend some minutes walking around, the flowers were colorful, we loved the small winding river (pic 2) or just save some energy at the benches (pic 3), we also noticed many locals having picnic at many spots, we just had ice cream from a small kiosk.
By the way you will notice the statue of Andersen at the back side of the Cathedral (pic 4).
The park is open from sunrise to sunset and has no admission fee.
Address: Odense C, 5000 Odense, Denmark
