Although he left Odense pretty quick after a fairly rubbish childhood there, the city makes a big deal of his birth place, and there are even benches with monster claws for legs! You can find the Hans Christian Andersen museum in Odense, and there is also the Hans Christian Andersen Garden's to visit.Odense also boasts some pretty fabulous architecture with both the Saint Knuds Church and the Egeskov Castle to visit, too.

In Copenhagen, there is also lots to see and do. It's perhaps one of the most up and coming capitals at the moment, with a lot of tourists flocking there. Like Amsterdam, it's a great place to do a canal tour. One of the most famous things to see in the city is the Little Mermaid statue. The statue is to commemorate Hans Christian Andersen and has overlooked the harbour since 1913.

Lastly, another reason I want to visit Denmark is to catch up with my friends Julie and Jude who I met up with at Blog Camp in Berlin a few years ago, as they are both based there.
*Edit* A Brit & A Southerner also chose Denmark today, for more information on Denmark go visit their post...
