About Odense

With a history dating back more than 1,000 years of history, Odense is one of the oldest cities in Denmark. A legacy dating from the Vikings, all the way into today’s transformation to a modern Danish city with a hub for robot technology and innovation, connects Odense with the outside world and makes us proud to live in Odense
