Fairy Tale Sculptures
Hans Christian Andersen, the Danish world-renowned literary and fairy tale writer, lived in the town of Odense. Many of his stories which have been translated into more than 150 languages, were written at his home in Hans Jensensstræde. Many Disney movies, including the Little Mermaid and Frozen, have been adapted from the works of Denmark’s most famous writer.
