On its own, this building will stand grandly in any European city squares. But in Odense, this city hall appears to be overshadowed by the nearby St Knud’s church. Nevertheless, in combination, the 2 buildings do complement each to welcome visitors to the Odense city...More

Attended a reception here, which was so well done. Welcomed in by Hans Christian Anderson Singers, whose performance was delightful. Food not great, but probably all that was paid for.

Only saw it from the outside, but still a beautiful building. It was build in 1881-1883 on the same place of the 400 year old city hall. There were originally a tower but it was demolished i 1942. It's open for visits during the weekdays.
