  • Better check if Holger is sleeping, if not Denmark is in trouble. The story is that Holger Danske always wake up to protect Denmark from "bad guys".  more »
  • This is located in the basement of the castle and it well worth the walk because of the history of the legend.  more »
  • A big sculpture of Holger Danske is located in the beginning of the Kronborg's casemates. This hero is sleeping while nothing threatens Denmark. In other case he will wake up and fight for his country. Very interesting to see it. Casemates themselves are a bit narrow and dark (think about this before going there). So you'll need to use a flashlight.
  • Follow the Casemate tour, you will learn a lot. Great story with real stuff
