• Celebrate Hans Christian Anderson in Denmark

    2010-08-24

    Denmark was the home and birthplace of one of the world's great storytellers, Hans Christian Anderson, and travelers can celebrate his legacy while on trips to the country.

    Anderson is most widely known for his children's stories, which include "The Little Mermaid," "The Princess and The Pea," "The Emperor's New Clothes" and "The Ugly Duckling." There are a number of places that fans of Anderson's work should be sure to visit while in Denmark.

    The first and most important stop is undoubtedly the Hans Christian Anderson House in the author's hometown of Odense. This landmark, where Anderson was born, has since been turned into an extensive museum that houses many possessions, letters and rare manuscripts left by the deceased writer. Travelers who want to go a bit deeper might want to book a tour around Odense, where guides will likely point out some of Anderson's other favorite locations.

    Travelers should also be sure to pay a visit to the Little Mermaid statue in Copenhagen. This statue is a favorite among locals and tourists who frequently pose for pictures with the mermaid. The Little Mermaid is currently on loan as part of Denmark's exhibit at the Shanghai World Expo, but will return to her home in October.
