When you’re planning a trip to the Danish city of Odense make sure to consider our Odense car hire services as your main means of transportation. Odense is Denmark’s third-largest urban settlement and being situated on an island it offers its visitors a great atmosphere which combines quiet cobblestoned streets with vibrant nightlife and great shopping opportunities with a rich local culture.
The city is served by Odense Airport but ever since the island has become linked to the mainland by the Great Belt Bridge most visitors will arrive via train from Copenhagen. However if you do fly into Odense then our Odense car rental services can have a car of your choice ready for you as soon as you land.
The settlement has its beginnings during the Viking era when it was a small center of the Odin cult and its first recorded reference dates from 988 AD, so it’s a pretty old settlement.
The city features a number of interesting museums such as the Railway Museum where you can see many old trains and carriages as well as a very large model train landscape.
The Brandts Kaledefabrik acts as something of the cultural center of the city, containing two museums: the Danish Museum of Media and the Museum of Photographic Arts, both of them being complimented by an art gallery as well as a music library, a specialist cinema, a couple of bars, the post office and other specialist shops.
Odense is the hometown of Hans Christian Andersen and as such there is a museum dedicated to the city’s most famous son. Part of the museum dedicated to him is located in the house where it is said that the author was born and exhibits an impressive collection of documents from his life as well as period furniture.
Such an old settlement had to have a castle and indeed it does, Egeskov Castle is one of the continent’s best preserved Renaissance water castles and dates back from 1554. The present-day owner added some other features such as a maze, a veteran auto museum, a toy museum and a few more which you’ll have to discover for yourself.
These are of course only a few of the many things that you can see and do while in Odense and with the help of our Odense car hire services you can get to experience so much more of what the city has to offer.
