In late May I'll be attending a conference in Copenhagen. As I haven't been to Denmark since I was a teen, I'm considering a stopover on the way for a glimpse at another Danish city.
Travel is by train and there are two potential routes between Hamburg and Copenhagen. On the way TO Copenhagen I will be taking the direct ICE via the Puttgarden-Rødby ferry (this sounds exciting), after a two-day stay in Hamburg - this has already been booked and settled.
For the way BACK I am considering the other route via Fyn and Fredericia and then south on the mainland. The idea is hopping over from Copenhagen in the morning, booking a hotel in "stopover city" for one night, some sightseeing in the afternoon and next morning, and then continuing the long ride home around noon the next day.
Cities along the route are Odense, Fredericia and Kolding, so these are the options in question. Among these, Odense looks most appealing to me at first sight - I am interested in historical architecture, cities/towns, churches, castles/palaces, maybe a museum (not at all into nightlife).
What do you think?
How much is a disposable phone and can I easily find one in Odense
Is it worth to stay couple of nights in Odense a week before the opening of Christmas market? or during this very time the town, especially the old centre, will be stuffed by trucks, boxes and constructions for CM preparations? I had such experience before, and it made walking and wandering around a city not as pleasant as it could be..(just have to tell in advance, parking problems are not a point: I'll travel by public transport)
We wanna visit Roermond Designer Outlet and then we will continue to Brussel. Is it possible by train? We are staying in Amsterdam. How can we trip from Amsterdam to Roermond after that Brussel at the same day ? If someone can help us, we will be glad because we have no idea about it:)
Hi, can anybody help me! I'm looking for the quickest and cheapest way to get from Billund airport to Odense and back. The websites I look at are fine until it comes to book and then it reverts back to Danish!! Help please, how long does the journey take?
Thanks in advance - Andy
Is there anything to see or do in Odense on Sunday ? I read that all shops are closed on Sunday in Denmark. How about those museums or souvenir shops ?
Several years ago I spent time in a prominent department store which, on one of it's upper floors, carried reproductons and antiques. Does this still exist and what is the name of the store? Tak!
How easy it is to get from Copenhagen to Odense ?
By the way how to pronounce the name correctly ?
New here, and frankly quite new to travel in general. I've never left the states, and after getting out of a long term relationship, I think it's time I do. My great grandfather came to America from Odense; I want to find out who I am, and where I'm from.
Being new to international travel, I don't know where to start when planning this trip. Here is what I know...
* I'd like the trip to last for a total of two weeks.
* I'd like to spend the majority of time in Odense, but perhaps take some time to check out other interesting nearby areas.
Money is a big concern, and I want to be able to do this as inexpensively as possible,but without sacrificing my own comfort. Thus, I need suggestions on -
* Food (would like to splurge a bit on this...)
With that said, what should I know about Odense/Denmark/traveling abroad in general that I probably don't at the moment? I plan on visiting at the beginning of December; is this a good/bad time of the year to visit?
Any and all help is MUCH appreciated!
Is there anywhere in odense to watch American football?

Hi, I will be in Odense for a month. How is the nightlife there? Which are the best bars/clubs and which nights are the best to go? I'm hoping to meet some locals so that I can get a better perspective of Odense as I may stay there for a longer time next year. Cheers, Marl
I was recommended this city as a smaller, kinder, more hospitable alternative from Copenhagen and was curious when the best time to visit might be to enjoy the nightlife and meet the locals?
I guess when the university starts up (September?) and on the weekend?
Though this isn't the most active forum, I was hoping to get some help. I am moving to Odense in August and have 2 questions:
1) Where can I find out about a realistic range of prices for an apartment? My wife and I want something with at least a living room, bedroom and office that is nice... and lots of windows! :) Is there a newspaper I can look at or can someone just give me a rough estimate of prices?
2) We are also going to buy a car. My wife is German and I am wondering if it is cheaper to buy in Germany than Denmark?.... this may be a tough question to answer but any help would be great.
okay, if it turns out that I get some responses, I am sure I'll have plenty more questions in the next couple weeks...
I'm a high school student from Wisconsin, USA and I will be staying a full year in Odense on foreign exchange. I haven't heard from my host family yet but I will soon. What are some things I should know about Odense? Will I have a good time there? Are there a lot of activities in the city? Anything you think that would be beneficial to me, let me know. Thank you so much:).
Hi, The lab secretary has found a 120 kvm apartment with 3 rooms, tv and internet connection for us (me, husband and one-year -old child). It is in a 2nd floor, overlooking a park. The price is DKK 7000 including water, heat and electricity. Does it sound reasonable or very expensive? How much can water, heat and electricity cost? It sounds really expensive to me... Should I tell her to rent it? She says we can get out of the lease with one month notice if we want. Thanks! Dolores.
Hi, I am moving to Odense in mid-January to work in the University as a post-doc. I do not have a clue about what kind of shoes and clothes should we wear. Does it snow? Do we really need completely-water-proof shoes and coats? Should I buy shoes here in Argentina or over there? The best I have been able to find here (we are in spring) are Hi-tech trekking shoes, supposedly water proof, that cost approx. 100 USD. How much does a pair of appropiate shoes cost there? Thanks a lot for your attention.
I have not been to Odense before but would like to go for a short trip, maybe 2 or 3 days, just to get a flavour of the place and meet up with some friends. Would anybody know if it is possible to fly direct to Odense Airport from London at the start of October. I am looking at cheap RyanAir / EasyJet type flights not business class. If I can't fly cheaply direct, which Danish airport would be the easiest and quickest to go to, assuming that I am going to take the train the rest of the way to Odense. I am wondering also about the feasibility of going to Copenhagen with EasyJet and then catching a very short local flight with someone like Mærsk. Any suggestions ?
