We visited Anderson's childhood home a few years ago. It looks like a tale itself and it is a nice place to know more about this famous story writer. Surrounded with beautiful trees and colorful houses, I was reminded about the fairy tales I have read in my childhood. It is worth visiting, although it is not located in Copenhagen,... More

Awh, this is such a lovely place to visit. The tiny rooms and rickety furniture. I can imagine it could be quite a harsh place to live in Hans's time period. Today, it's a lovely quaint hamlet of cobbled street and lovely refurbished little houses.

We did a stop in Odense on the way home and the Hans Christian Andersen museum and home were on our list. The museum includes the house where he was born. This is the house where he spent his childhood. It is near the cathedral. We were there in Dec. 2015 and they are redoing the garden which will be... More

When walking through that area, we came across Hans Christian Andersen's Childhood Home. It is quite cute and was lovely to see it.

Nice to see how people lived in that period The ticket gives you also access to the HCA museum, witch is much bigger Was a nice experience but kids could be disappointed because, if you want the stories, you have to go to Copenhagen!!! although there is a kids place and on some occasions workshops for kids.

If you're interested in Hans Christian Andersen, this would be interesting with various displays. Otherwise it's interesting mainly to see a family home from that period.

It was nice to walk around the house and see how small it actually was compared to the one that was at the museum. Plan on taking less than 15 minutes to see the whole thing.

A small home with a few details and a lovely garden. The ticket purchased for the Hans Christian Andersen museum allows free entrance to this museum, otherwise probably not worth a special trip.

It was interesting to see how he lived and what his everyday life was like but I expected the exhibition to be a bit more extensive than this. The children found it very dull though, luckily they enjoyed the garden.
