    Røde Mølle (the Red Mill)

    2.64 km

    The Red Mill Røde Mølle is an old water mill located close to Langesø Estate. The mill is located at the mouth of Sværup Mølleå, which flows into the river Stavids Å. The stream flows through the mill pond by the building.

    The strong current in the stream provides plenty of energy for a mill, and there have been several mills on the site. The building is first mentioned in 1571 as “then red mill”. The buildings at Røde Mølle were painted red, hence the name.

    Røde Mølle and the half-timbered farmhouse were built around 1825, and at that time it was a grain mill. The mill burned down in 1831 and was rebuilt as a sawmill under Langesø Gods, which had extensive forestry at the time.

    The mill was in operation until 1948, after which the mill was restored.

    From Red to White Mill

    Røde Mølle and the farmhouse are listed and have been restored several times. The Langesø Estate sold the buildings in 2015.

    Today, both mill and farmhouse are painted white. The current owners received Nordfyn Municipality's cultural heritage award in 2020 for their work in refurbishing the buildings, which today are home and holiday homes for the modern family.

    The mill is privately owned, and you can see the historic building from the road.

    Langesø Castle

    3.58 km

    The beautiful manor house, Langesø Castle, is situated next to a long, narrow lake, which has given its name to the place (which means long lake). The current building was built in 1774-78, but there was a manor house on the site already in the time of Queen Margrethe I in the 14th century. There have been many manor buildings on the site, forinstance Antonius Bryske built a main building with a tower in 1554. However, it only had a short life as it was built by the lake shore which sank under the heavy stones. At the end of the 17th century, a half-timbered building was built, and 100 years later the current main building in classicist style was added.

    The manor has had many owners, but the line of owners has been particularly dominated by the noble families Skinkel, Bryske and Berner. Under the Berner family, the manor was elevated to a barony by the king. In 1977, the last owner, baron Godske Berner Schilden Holsten, established the Langesø Foundation and donated the manor to it. The chairman of the foundation's board must always be a member of the Berner family.

    There is a large production of Christmas trees on the estate.

    The manor house is privately owned and can only be seen from the road.

    There are many hiking trails in the large forests around the castle, where it is nice to go for a walk. There are MTB tracks and riding trails in the forests. If you want to use them, it is necessary to purchase a license.

    It is also possible to see the castle from the lake side. Rent a boat and enjoy a sailing trip on Langesø with or without a fishing rod. Boats can be hired locally.

    Odense Harbour & Marina

    7.98 km

    Odense Harbour was built in the beginning of the 19th century and a lot has happened since then. For 150 years it served as a busy industrial harbour, but now it's transforming into a new and exciting area with residential buildings, a culture house, The North Atlantic House, cafés and plenty of free sport-friendly activities. The area has obvious references to the past in the shape of the many preserved and “recycled” buildings.

    Over the last couple of years several sports facilities have been built at the harbour. On “The City's Island” you can play beach volley, pétanque, try outdoor crossfit & parkour, miniature golf and play indoor soccer at the “Football Factory”. Which is right next to our harbour beach, where you can enjoy a cool drink among the palm trees. Quite recently it became possible to go for a swim in the new harbour bath, which has all the modern amenities such as; changing rooms, an open air swimming pool, sauna etc. and attracts many locals on hot and sunny days.

    It's possible to buy unique glass art at The Glassworks, where you can also see the work in progress. If you're more into vintage, there is a flea market every Sunday during the summer months - get there early if you want to make a great find! 

    If you start to feel peckish, you have several choices: the restaurant at The North Atlantic House is open for brunch, lunch and dinner, and serves modern dishes inspired by the region. Only a few minutes walk from the harbour you'll also find a street food market in an old warehouse called Storms Pakhus

    8.22 km

    Byens Bro (The City Bridge) is a bridge for people on foot and by bike that want to cross the railway tracks at Odense Railway Station and the purpose of the bridge is to better connect the harbour area and the city centre for cyclists and pedestrians. Opened in May 2015, the bridge is 135 metres long and runs from Østre Stationsvej to VUC in Kottesgade. On the way, you cross 15 railway tracks and from the bridge there is access to three of the station's platforms via lift and stairs.

    The footbridge over the railway tracks was designed by Gottlieb Paludan Architects, who won the competition to design it in 2012. The bridge is beautiful and impressive, especially in the dark with lights on.

    The name Byens Bro (The City Bridge) was chosen through a competition with more than 1300 local participants.

    Kongens Have (King's Garden) in Odense

    8.43 km

    The King's Garden was laid out as a Baroque garden in the 1720s according to a plan by architect Johann Cornelius Krieger. Of course, many changes have been made to the garden since then, due in part to the Dutch elm disease, but parts of the old garden can still be seen. There are also a number of sculptures in the garden, including Gottfred Eickhoff's Lover's Struggle and Aksel Hansen's equestrian statue of Christian IX.

    Especially in summer, the garden is often used as a setting for various outdoor cultural events like outdoor concerts and festivals.

    The Butterflies in the lake

    8.64 km

    In Munke Mose you can find this fine sculpture/decoration of coloured butterflies floating above the water in the small lake. The inspiration for the sculpture comes from Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tale about Thumbelina sailing on a water lily leaf pulled by a butterfly after she has escaped from the toad. The colourful butterflies in Munke Mose are part of the fairy tale playground nearby.

    Munke Mose is one of the most popular parks in Odense, and the fairy tale playground attracts many visitors daily. The large, colourful butterflies decorate the area around the small Thumbelina-inspired playground, where you can balance on big water lily leaves, slide down a large "cliff" or play by the stream.

    Hans C. Andersen's Childhood Home

    8.74 km

    The house opened to the public in 1930. The cobblestone street sets the stage for a visit to the past.

    The house contains the very humble rooms which comprised the home of the great fairy tale writer and to which his dearest memories of childhood are attached. Don't confuse this house with the actual museum in the historic quarter, which you can visit also. The rooms mimic Hans Christian Andersen's descriptions in his autobiography and give you a good impression of the poverty that marked his early years.

    The charming backyard garden, which was established in 2018, is filled with plants and flowers that Andersen mentioned in his writings, like docks, an elderflower bush and more. The garden is small and surrounded by brick walls separating you from the neighbours. The atmosphere is calm, and it is hard to remember that you are standing in the city centre of Denmark's 3rd largest city.

    The Hans Christian Andersen Childhood Home is free for children under 18. Please note that opening hours may differ during holidays, visit the website for further information.

    The Walking Street Quarter - Odense City

    8.67 km

    The dedicated walking streets of Odense’s city centre are reserved for pedestrians and their leisure, as they are filled with opportunities for shopping and eating out. Odense has such an abundance of restaurants that; per capita, no other Danish city has more restaurants available, with the majority of them lining the walking streets.

    This quarter also houses a great amount of history, one example is the historically significant Cathedral (Domkirken), which is known for being the site where Canute the Holy (then Canute IV), was slain by rebels along with several of his followers. He was the first and only Danish king to be canonised by the church; the act of being chosen as a saint, and one of only five Danish saints in total.

    Right across from the Cathedral is the city’s historical city hall, which still houses the municipal offices and faces the historical market-square “Flakhaven”. Flakhaven means flat field and the square has functioned as a market square since the 1200s, at times even the biggest in the country.

    Behind this section is the Monastery Garden (Klosterhaven), which showcases natural herbs and medicinal plants, handed down and cared for by monks of the past who acted as the city’s healers.

    Around the corner of this garden is the Fairy Tale Garden (Eventyrhaven), which is devoted to Hans Christian Andersen and displays an array of fairy tale sculptures along with a diverse arrangement of flowers and a water fountain. This garden also hosts the H. C. Andersen Parade during the summer.
