Hourly pleasure-boat trips start from Munke Mose park taking half an hour to reach the wooded Fruens Bøge area, where there’s a ‘nature playground’ and from which it’s a 15-minute walk to Den Fynske Landsby. The boat stops part way at Odense Zoo en route, southbound only. Tickets allow stop-offs.

The 2pm boat journey on weekdays costs 30kr extra and includes a Hans Christian Andersen family focused experience. In July and early August the 11am, noon and 1pm departures on Saturdays have a jazz band. Book ahead.
