Getting around Odense
With the exception of the zoo, located a couple of kilometers away, the main attractions of the city are located a short distance between them. Therefore, the most practical way for getting around in Odense is, without a doubt, on foot, or, alternatively, by bike.
Buses and taxis are an ideal solution for medium to long distance distances, or for visiting the points of interest of the island of Fyn.
GETTING AROUND ODENSE ON FOOT OR BY BIKE
To visit most of the city’s attractions, you won’t have to walk more than 10 minutes. Monuments, attractions and main districts are all located in a limited area, easily accessible on foot.
The bike is an excellent alternative to get to places and areas that are difficult to reach on foot. Moreover, the city, like all Denmark, has always been sensitive to the issue of sustainability. In this sense, CIBI is the optimal solution to rent your bike for free, simply by using your smartphone. More info on the official foods website.dk
