Take a town walk in Odder

Odder is much more than a lovely station town. Here you can experience the tranquillity and roots of the town’s small and sometimes hidden stories. Take an historic town walk and discover how past and present unite in the town streets.


Denne byvandring i Odder passer til både korte og lange ben.

Start turen på Torvet

Med udgangspunkt fra Torvet og det smukke Centralhotel fra 1907 bør du gå forbi Odder Apotek, der faktisk kan dateres helt tilbage til 1852.

Dengang lå apoteket, hvor Centralhotellet ligger i dag. Torvet var endnu ikke etableret – i stedet var det et smukt haveanlæg. Den første apoteker var nemlig en ihærdig havemand. Apoteket rykkede i 1906 til sin nuværende beliggenhed.

Swing past the old Prison (Arrest)

The tour continues past the old courthouse and prison from 1856, which closed in 1939. Together with Central Hotel, it is one of the most beautiful buildings in Odder if you ask us!

Move on over Rådhustorvet to Aabygaden, where you can get a glimpse of the dome of the private observatory, built by Torvald Køhl, who was a private astronomer and pioneer in researching and disseminating knowledge about astronomy.

Then follow Nørregade to Nygade. Here – at the top of the many steps – you will find Odder’s Reunification Stone, which was unveiled on Midsummer’s Eve in 1922 to celebrate the reunification with South Jutland. The stone itself was found in the field of Snærild Fattiggård.

Enjoy the coffee from Madam Blå pots at Odder museum

The end of the splendour must, of course, be Odder Museum Odder Museum.

Here you can buy a good cup of coffee served in Madam Blå pots. You can also enjoy it on the grass somewhere in the area.

And cake is also a must, and it is fortunate that Fru Møller gets up early and bakes pretzel-shaped pastries for the museum

Tip! The perfect photo spot

Are you going to take a memory home from a lovely day? The bridge over the duck pond is the perfect photo spot. Here you have both the pond and the old mill house in the background – it doesn’t get any more idyllic than that.

Treasure hunt for the little ones

If you have the children with you, the town tour in Odder can be spiced up with the Odder Treasure Hunt, where you solve exciting puzzles together and learn about the town along the way. We even hand out a free custom-made medal to the youngest treasure hunters!
