*The Legend of Holger Dane: In the bowels of Kronborg Castle in Helsingør – the Elsinore Castle of Shakespeare’s Hamlet – sits the statue of the slumbering Viking hero Holger Dane. Legend has it that if ever Denmark is under attack and in great need Holger Dane will wake from his slumber and come to the aid of his country.
