Hans Christian Andersen had a rich travel life and wrote many travelogues, which "are often celebrated for their journalistic flair, but which are in fact very poetical books, picturesque and lyrical in their style and way of describing reality." (Johan de Mylius: www.andersen.sdu.dk/liv/minibio/rejseboeger_e.html).

The survey contains texts of a very varying length. The large travel books are these five:

Besides these "genuine" travelogues, one should not ignore the debut book Fodreise (A journey on foot) – even though it is not about a real journey – nor the novel The Improvisatore from 1835, which may rightfully be conceived of as a travelogue concerned with Andersen's journey to Italy 1833-34.
