  • 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.
