A historical location
Næsbyhoved Skov strives to be a meeting place for the locals as this area used to be back in the day. The place is about 200 meters from a hill, where there used to be an old castle in the middle ages. When the local people burned down the castle during the count’s feud in 1534, the hills and Næsbyhoved forest became a gathering place for the people of Odense. In the 19th century, this area became a popular place for shooting, hunting and fishing, and the small restaurant, Fuglsanhuset, was established. In 1889, Fuglsanghuset was taken over by the drayman Jørgen Madsen. Today this place is called Næsbyhoved Skov and it is owned by the fourth generation of the Madsen family.
