Wondering the casements under Kronborg castle you "discover" the sleeping Holger, waiting for Denmark to be in mortal peril to awaken and save the Danish.

This statue of this sleeping viking guards the Kronberg dungeons and was fun to "find"--a friendly dane told us that the Where's Waldo books are translated into Danish as "Finding Holger," making him a favorite of Danish children, who also know the legend from the Hans Christian Anderson story. Read it here for a good introduction to the legend, and also to Danish history & culture: http://www.hca.gilead.org.il/holger_d.html

Makes for a good t shirt, idea, too, for a travel present. The sleeping dane who will wake one day and save the world! Good statue in the casements of Kronborg Slot.
