Holger the Dane is Sleeping Now


Our tour of Kronborg Castle took us underground where we met Holger the Dane. Although he appears to be sleeping in the castle, which was reportedly the setting for Shakespeare's Hamlet, he will awake when in need. He is fully dressed in armor, and reportedly if the country of Denmark is ever in danger, he will wake up to save the day!

Do you prefer to explore old castles on your own, or do you like guided tours?

You'll be glad you rode the train from Copenhagen to Helsingor ... it's the only place to meet Holger the Dane! But, you might not notice the statue if you don't go on a guided tour. If you did find him on your own, you probably wouldn't know his story!

If you traveled to Kronborg Castle, would you go on a guided tour or explore the castle on your own? #WordyExplorers #denmark #copenhagen #helsingor #HolgerTheDane
