An impressive statue located in the dungeons of Kronborg Slot. It looks stunning sitting there in the dark and suddenly it gets illuminated.

Good guy, sitting in the cellars of the historical castle Kronborg in the beautiful middle-aged town of Helsingor, 60 km., north of Copenhagen. The Holger Danske, is the protector of the Danes.

If you are into history and legends you must visit the casemates in Kronborg Castle and learn about the adventures of this legendary "danish" hero. * other european traditions also claim Holger as their own. But I personally like the danish version :)

This huge statue...well, maybe not that huge, but incredibly dominating and powerful. Arrests your attention and commands your respect.

Holder Danske can be found on Kronborg Castle in the tunnels underneath. The myths say he will arise if Denmark is in trouble. Worth a look if you are visiting the castle.
