Fremont Troll, Seattle

4.0
One of Seattle's more unusual tourist attractions, Fremont Troll hides out under the Aurora Bridge. The giant stone sculpture of a troll eating a full-size Volkswagen Beetle was created by a team of local artists led by sculptor Steve Badanes. The mixed-media artwork is made of rebar steel, wire, and reinforced concrete. Though you can have your picture taken standing next to the sculpture, you can also climb on top of it and take a look at its one good eye, made from an ordinary hubcap.

  • We found this interesting sight in Seattle while taking a guided tour of Seattle. We would never have found it otherwise. It was great fun and a wonderful photo op  more »
  • Be sure to visit the Fremont Troll under the bridge. It's a strange spot but worth it for the photo alone. Cheers  more »

  • I mean really - where else are going to see a huge troll under a bridge? I was surprised at just how large it really is. I'm 6'4" and stood on its shoulders and was about the height of the head. Truly interesting and not something you will see elsewhere. I love the uniqueness of this local treat. And we got to see him (it?) with freshly painted nails from a couple days earlier
  • Public art at it's most-whimsical, fun, and quirky. A great piece of sculpture that begs for a visit, especially if you have children, while in Seattle. There is not a great deal of parking, except on the street, so you may have to walk a block. But, it is worth the effort.
