It is nice to see while walking through the city and this so close to the centre and historical museum you will certainly pass it by. Otherwise, nothing special.

The soldier is located slightly out of the central area, and we wandered by one morning when we took a stroll on this side of town just to see what is there. To me, the area this soldier is located is more interesting than the...More

So thrilled to see this statue! It is in between two streets lined with cafes in Odense on the way to the Hans Christian Anderson's house. You can't miss it!
