Stort medie mener: Odense blandt de steder man skal besøge i 2021

Af Emil Kjær Jørgensen

De fleste af os kan nok blive enige om, at Odense er en fantastisk by at bo og leve i.

Men nu får byen også anerkendelse fra den store verden. Det amerikanske medie Time laver hvert år en liste med de 100 bedste steder i verden (2021 World’s Greatest Places).

Og minsandten om ikke Odense er på den fornemme liste.

En eventyrlig by, der er værd at besøge

Med overskriften “A Fairy-tale city” beskriver de Odense som en by, der ligger på en stille ø med hyggelige huse og brostensgader.

De nævner naturligvis også HC Andersen og åbningen af det helt nye HC Andersen Hus – som du kan læse mere om her.

Derudover fremhæver de også Storms Pakhus, som tilbyder en bredt udvalg af lækre retter.

Den fulde tekst lyder:

“An hour and a half by train from Copenhagen, Odense is located on a quiet island with colorful half-timbered houses and crooked cobblestone streets. Hans Christian Andersen was born in the sleepy city, which this summer will see the opening of the brand-new H.C. Andersen House. Designed by Japanese architect Kengo Kuma, the museum was designed with his famous fairy tales in mind. Exhibitions include experiential tributes to the tales: in a Little Mermaid–­inspired area, for example, visitors can lie down beneath a glass ceiling to look up into a pool of water and imagine they are in the ocean. If traversing the magic of Andersen’s stories works up an appetite, the nearby Storms Pakhus street-food hall—a 100-year-old warehouse with stalls offering everything from freshly baked naan to fish and chips—is a decidedly contemporary counterpoint.”
