It was very interesting to learn about Holger/Ogier the Dane, especially in the setting of the casemates in the Kronborg Castle. He was made famous to Denmark and the Kronborg Castle when Hans Christian Andersen wrote a fairytale based on this legend. When I visited,...More

Holger (or Ogier) the Dane sits asleep in the dark, in the casemates of Kronborg Castle until, legend has it, Denmark is in trouble. Then, he will wake up and defend the mother country. Saw this as part of the free Casemates tour at Kronborg...More

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