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.

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...More

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

If you visit Kronberg Castle, be sure to join a guided tour of the casemates, which you can learn about and then explore on your own. The Holger Danske statue is the highlight of this short tour. Well worth the time.

If walking by, step in and contemplate the quiteness and peace inside. Take some time to relax and get inspiration before continue your visit to Helsingor.

Be sure to get a picture here in Kronborg. Continue to follow the arrows through the undercroft. It's a little creepy down there but a lot of fun too.

By train. We got the train from Copenhagen Norreport direct to Helsingør (aka Elsinore in Hamlet). Took around an hour. Castle is less than 10-min walk from the station. Town is nice so you may want to factor in some time... More
