Kronborg Castle

AKA Hamlet's Castle

Ogier the Dane

Known in Denmark as Holger Danske. The legend says that when the kingdom is threatened by an outside enemy the stone figure will become flesh and blood, and Holger Danske will rise again in defence of his native land.

This is actually the plaster figure from which the bronze statue was made from. Because this sits in the casemates of Kronborg, it is more famous than the bronze version.
