Product Description:
Guide: Odense - the capital of the adventure
Follow HC Andersen's footsteps in the fairytale town, which thrills events related to his name and narratives.
If you are a little purple or just a little short leg, it's not easy to get into HC Andersen's footsteps. Because he was tall - with his 185 cm he was actually about 25 cm higher than the average in the 19th century. Hans Christian Andersen was long legs, took long steps and had big feet, and even today only the fewest can fill the red footprint in size 47, which on a 3.1 km long route leads us to the 13 places in Odense that have Had the greatest significance for his 14th year of life in the city.
However, some have been lucky enough to hit the footprints, because in many places they are so pale and weary that it is difficult to see them. Fortunately, there is help in the form of a small guide in practical pocket format in Danish and as app in 10 languages with a small narrative about each of the 13 marked stops.
