Place where H. C. Andersen was probably born. In Andersen’s childhood days this charming cottage was located in the slum and was divided into 3 apartments dwelled by 5 or more families. It is known for sure that originally the grandmother of the story-teller lived here and then the aunt of his father.

The old shop as well as the merchant home dates back to sixteenth century. There is a museum nowadays but still shopping is possible here…
H. C. Andersen was enchanted with the theatre from his early childhood. The great fabulist came from a very poor family that could not afford a luxury of going to the theatre.
