“A Taste of H.C. Andersen's Youth”
Reviewed 7 June 2012

A Great place to visit if you are a fan of his work like his paper cuttings and renowned stories such as "The Ugly Duckling". This story was supposed to be what Andersen thought of himself as ugly. Inside, explore his room, the courtyard, the attic bed, and much more. Such a talented young writer and storyteller was from this house, close to the City Centre.

“The (second) most interesting site for H.C. Andersen in Odense”
Reviewed 4 June 2012

The Childhood Home of H.C. Andersen is quite interesting an the place you want to go if you want a look into the life of H.C. Andersen. It isn't the house on the picture though (thats a restaurant close to H.C. Andersens Hus).

“Not much to talk about”
Reviewed 30 March 2012

You could only see the house, that looked like any other old house from outside, and it's in pretty bad shape, only recommended if you are into Hans Christian Andersen

“Not excited at all”
Reviewed 14 January 2012

I was expecting much more. For me the only interesting thing was the library with the collection of H.C. Andersen books translated in any language that you can imagine. Apart of this...

“Not much of an experience”
Reviewed 1 January 2012

Unless you're into HC Andersen you won't see nothing else than a typical old town house from Odense.

The statue at the river is really beautiful, though.
