Book Grethe

I have lived all of my adulthood in Odense, and I am deeply interested in its history and development. I have been a certified guide since 2012, and my great passion is to convey my knowledge about the city to you, telling facts and the good story, mixed with humor and enthusiasm. I live close to the inner city and therefore, knows streets and hideaways.
