If you want to enjoy Odense’s beautiful nature, cozy Munke Mose is an obvious option for this. Munke Mose is very beautiful in the spring, when the leaves gradually come on the trees. Munke Mose is cozy and beautiful in all kinds of weather. Here you can bring your own picnic basket or buy takeaway at one of the many cafés around Odense. It can be a bit cold at Easter, so it’s a good idea to bring a blanket so you can lay out on the grass. In Aafarten’s kiosk it is possible to buy a cup of coffee or an ice cream.
