About 'Hans Christian Andersen on the River'

The boat leaves from the dock with Hans Christian Andersen on board in the person of actor Torben Iversen. He tells a number of well-known and loved fairy tales, and at the same time you can experience the fairy tales performed by live actors on the river bank.

In this way, the cruise up the Odense River is a fairy tale journey through a lot of small tableaux that bring Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tales to life.
