Monstour: Discover Danish folk legends on an audio walking tour

The legendary creatures of Danish folklore are more than just the Little Mermaid immortalised by H. C. Andersen. The Danish bestiary also includes such monsters as man-eating trolls, dragons who hoard treasures and fight against bulls, the heraldic wild men depicted on the royal coat of arms and the strange creature known as the ”Sea Bishop”. Even the centre of Copenhagen that draws the most tourists and traffic is haunted by mythical beasts who are seen in statues, reliefs and artwork on buildings.

Yet many of these monsters remain unknown to most visitors. You can, however, now fill this gap in your folkloric knowledge. Download the HidDenmark Monstour VoiceMap unto your Smartphone.
