Odense & Kolding

Odense and Kolding are two vibrant cities in Southern Denmark. Odense is located on the island of Funen, and has a population of about 174,000. It is a cheerful, compact city ideal for getting around on foot or by bicycle. In fact, there are bicycle paths from one end of the city to the other. The cultural life is rich with theatres and music houses, and the city buzzes with students and researchers, as the University of Southern Denmark is located there.

However, Odense may be most famous as the birthplace of Hans Christian Andersen, the much loved author of children’s fairy tales.

Kolding is a bustling seaport of about 90,000 inhabitants. It is known for its culture and design, and its impressive historic castle. Kolding today is experiencing rapid growth, and has always kept up a strong foreign trade industry. The University of Southern Denmark also has a large campus in Kolding.

Denmark makes an effort to offer women activities during pregnancy, such as classes and antenatal groups. Mothers on maternity leave like to go out to cafes and socialise with other women on maternity leave. It is common to see groups of five or more mothers pushing their prams through the city to visit one of the local cafes or just get some exercise. The local cinema has a matinee film every week where mothers can attend with their infants and are welcome to breastfeed.
