Gotta check out Holger Danske
Jul 2020
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".

This is located in the basement of the castle and it well worth the walk because of the history of the legend.

Statue in the dark
Oct 2019
The casemats are only lit by paraffin lamps, which gives this place a scary atmosphere. If you are lucky you can find some bads behind the statue. If you visit Kronborg don’t miss it.

Holger Danske--great statue.
Sep 2019
Seeing this statue, known to me for some years, in person was one of the reasons I visited. It did not disappoint. Take a flashlight--casement is dark and surfaces uneven.

Underground Passage to Find this Statue
Aug 2019 • Couples
This statue can be viewed by traversing the underground passages with Kronborg Castle. This may not be for everyone, as the floor is uneven, the lighting is not bright and the passage is not overly wide. The Statue is a very good sculpture.
Thanks for your vote.

Part of Kronborg Castle Underground
Jul 2019
This was part of Kronborg castle. It was located underground. It was dark to get to it so it’s helpful to have a flashlight. The light for the statue is changing so wait for the right moment before taking that picture.

Wow! Impressive! And the casements were so cool and a bit spooky!
Jun 2019 • Family
We spent a few hours at Kronborg Slot/Castle. This statue is down in the casements, beneath the castle. It is impressive in size. The lighting on the statue is excellent. There was a cutout near it that we could put our heads through to take photos, pretending to be Holger Danske. If you go to tour Kronborg, do not miss this!

Impressive statue
Jun 2019 • Family
The statue inside the Helsingør kronborg Castle is in a dark room with ambiental light, looking as if he just lost a battle.

Impressive statue
May 2019 • Friends
This was such a cool statue. Legend has it that he has never died, just slept for hundreds of years but if Denmark is ever under attack he will awake to defend. The lighting on this statue makes for a dramatic effect and for some great photos. Very impressive.
