Southern Denmark covers different areas such as Funen and south of Jutland, which are central in the Danish history. For instance the Hans Christian Andersen family home in Odense, the historical Jelling-Rune Stones from the times where Denmark was Christened, and as well nice bars, cafeś and restaurants in the center of Odense.
