Odense and Aero, Denmark

Hello, everyone...

I am going to be in Denmark for a brief spell next month, spending some time in both the city of Odense and on the island of Aero.

Has anyone been to these two places and can anyone make some recommendations for tasty food? Traditional Danish cuisine preferred.

Thanks in advance!

  1. I just got back from a Germany/Denmark bike trip that included 2 days in Aero. I can't comment too much on the food because we were mostly picnicing on a budget (which didn't go very far in Denmark!) but if you are even vaguely interested in beer you MUST try the Aero beer-- it is sold in local shops and the grocery stores and you can also visit the brewery in Store Rise (there are signs pointing the way off the main road). IMHO the stout is just magnificent; my husband preferred the Indian Pale Ale. There's a well-known smoked fish shop at Aeroskobing's harbor (around the corner from the tourist info office). Also check out the bakery (can't remember the name) on the street going south from the ferry... The bread was amazing.
