Few authors have been able to do what Hans Christian Andersen did: write so simply and profoundly that we are still enthralled. His eternally pertinent stories appeal to people all over the world and are read by children and adults alike.
However, the treasure trove of fairytales needs a physical setting that matches the poetry. Odense City Museums and the City of Odense have therefore launched this open ideas competition funded by the Realdania Foundation to create a unique place where fantasy and reality come together, where the past meets the present, and where the indoors and the outdoors merge into one: a magical house of fairytales and a fairytale garden.
