Bo & Mikkel's personal favorite places in Odense

Bo Jessen and Mikkel West are some of the creators of online guide This Is Odense. Here are some of their favourite places in the city.

The city’s backyards

The people of Odense no longer notice the backyards and alleyways around their city. Odense is a medieval town with narrow alleys and openings that are characteristic of the city and which you won’t find to a similar extent anywhere else in Denmark. They have a special charm all of their own.

You get real value for money at Nordatlantisk Hus by the harbor. A superb lunch and award winning architecture.

The Giant Fish

When you’re by the harbor, check out the silo with ROA's giant street art fish. 

The City Bridge

Because it’s of architectural interest and shows the city from an angle never seen before. The view of the harbor, the surrounding area, new perspectives.
