Hans Christian Andersen’s trunk at Copenhagen Airport

Hans Christian Andersen was not only the author of well-known fairy tales as Thumbelina, The Emperor’s New Clothes and the Flying Trunk, the Danish author and poet was a dedicated traveler.

All of Andersen’s journeys to other countries began in Copenhagen, so it’s appropriate that the big leather trunk Andersen used to bring along on his journeys is on display in the baggage claim at Copenhagen International Airport.
