Open-Air Museum: The Funen Village
Den Fynske Landsby, the Funen Village, is an open-air museum, where you can learn about living conditions and village life in Denmark in the 18th and 19th centuries.
This open-air museum for agriculture and rural life on Fyn was opened in 1946 and consists of almost 30 buildings, which have been moved here from all over Funen and meticulously rebuilt. This museum attempts to recreate an authentic village environment of the 18th and 19th centuries with clear social barriers reflected in the buildings: from the smallholder to the farmer and from the workhouse to the rectory and moreover the water mill, the windmill and finally the village school.
Den Fynske Landsby is situated in the beautiful woods near the forests Hunderup and Fruens Bøge, and the walk there is enjoyable in its own right, but you certainly get a deeper understanding if you visit the buildings and have a look inside. They are furnished with authentic pieces and kitchen utensils from the period.
On the outskirts of the village the 200 year old inn is open for business. During the season you can enjoy your tea or coffee in their beautiful garden and the restaurant stays open all year round.

Medieval and Renaissance Odense
City walk focusing on the development of the medieval and renaissance city of Odense
Challenge your idea of the size and surroundings of Odense in the Middle Ages on this guided walk along the former city boundary and be surprised at how small medieval Odense actually was. The city boundary consisted of big and small streams and swamps. In the renaissance Odense developed – but slowly.
On this guided walk your imagination will be challenged because there are only few visible traces of the Middle Ages such as a couple of churches and the former bishop's palace. From the renaissance period we have several more buildings.
My story will deal with the origin of Odense, its appearance and development in the course of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. And of course I will point out these buildings and tell you about their stories.

Odense, Vollsmose Housing District
The Area Vollsmose is controversial, and often appears in the headlines of the Danish press. Unfortunately, this picture is distorted and without nuances.
Through my work, I am very well aquainted with this neighbourhood. Vollsmose has been named after a swamp, and this type of landscape is still recognizable between the tenements, townhouses and areas with detached houses. Vollsmose is a meltingpot of traditional Danish lifestyle and the mulicultural and social variety of an international, modern neighbourhood. All in all, Vollsmose is an inspiring and nice place to live.
If you only know about Vollsmose from the media, this is your chance to exchange second-hand opinion with direct knowledge, based on experience. Take part in this guided tour and see for yourself. There are a great many really nice people here.
I have worked with one of the cooperative housing societies in this area, so I am very well informed about the neighbourhood.

Odense, New Districts at the Harbour
City walk in the interesting harbour district of Odense – splendid development. I have been involved in the planning from the outset, and now you can learn about the interesting stories.
The new district at the harbour in Odense is a lovely mixture of owner-occupied flats and rented flats. Furthermore, there are a lot of new company domiciles and old company buildings that have existed here for many decades. Some of the buildings you can admire is the old tollbooth and the Northatlantic House, Nordatlantens Hus which also holds a wellrenowned restaurant.
The challenge is to make these different building types and activities coexist in harmony and beauty. This is about the interplay of living, working and moving people and goods through an area in a way that maximizes Quality of Life for all. Let me tell my story, i.e. partly seen from the viewpoint of the communal housing societies.
