  • The Danish mythical hero lies asleep under Kronborg Castle The national hero Holger Danske is asleep, deep down in the underground passages of the castle’s casemates. He has slept for hundreds of years. According to an old legend, Holger Danske will wake up the day Denmark is threatened by enemies. Only then will his eyes open. He will then get to his feet and raise his sword.
  • Remember Your flashlight to see the writing on the wall.
  • This is where Holger Danske (Ogier the Dane) lives, it's a good tale of bravery, definitely worth a visit if you are nearby, it's part of the tour around the casemates of Kronborg Castle.
  • Et must see.
  • Notable Danish hero statue located in the castle's Casemates. It's fascinating history that dwells in the sculpture: the statue would be nothing more than the hero himself who will awaken when Denmark will need him again. Atmosphere also adds a touch of mystery almost perfect.
