Odense is one of Denmark's largest and oldest cities, with a 1000-year history. Despite this, the city is still quite small and it is easy to move between different attractions and sights. For those who travel with younger kids, the Children's Culture House Fyrtøjet is well worth a visit. This building looks like a large dollhouse, and offers a variety of dramas and performances influenced by H.C Andersen's many adventures. The visitors can dress up to different characters in fairy tales and try stage make up. Just next to Fyrtøjet you will also find the H.C. Andersen House, which for example serves as a book store.
