Internationalt magasin kårer: Odense blandt 16 europæiske byer, du skal besøge

Af Stine Kjølby Christensen

Corona har ikke ligefrem gjort det nemt at få bugt med sin rejselyst eller behov for at opleve nye steder ude i verden.

Man kunne håbe, at sommeren 2022 bød på meget mere af den slags, men hvis ikke … Så er det nok faktisk ikke så slemt.

Magasinet TimeOut har nemlig netop kåret Odense som én af de 16 byer, man bør besøge i Europa i 2022.

På listen findes steder som Oslo, Liverpool, Rotterdam, Milano m.fl. Odense er dog placeret på en solid plads nr. 4 og overgås kun af Arles (Frankrig), Brno (Czech Republic) og Kaunas (Lithuania).

TimeOut fremhæver blandt andet Odenses gode placering kun 90 minutter fra hovedstaden, og desuden det nye arkitektoniske H.C. Andersen Museum.

Derudover anbefaler de en tur på Hotel Odeon og en middag på Sortebro Kro.

Om Odense skriver TimeOut:

4. Odense, Denmark

Just 90 minutes by train from Copenhagen is dinky, charming Odense. The brand-new architectural wonder that is the Hans Christian Andersen Museum is an affectionate tribute to the fairytale author.

With its inventive biographical exhibits – including theatrical imaginings of his memoirs and inanimate projects that come alive (much like in his stories) – this thoroughly fun museum would no doubt have delighted the Danish master.

A slick light railway is being built across the city and is due to open in spring 2022, making the beautiful old quarters and vibrant newer neighbourhoods much easier to hop between.

The perfect day: Settle in at Hotel Odeon for swift access to both the train station and the picturesque Old Town. Head to Lalou for a early bev, then grab dinner at the historic Sortebro Kro, where you can expect seasonal treats like scallops and roe deer with berries, plus impeccably classy service.

Plan your trip: ASAP. The Hans Christian Andersen Museum will hold its grand opening on December 1, and we’re sure it’ll be packed out from day one. —Alex Hayward
