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.

  • It surprised me the way everyone waits (more of less) calmly for their turn to have their picture taken. Only a few.parking spots are available, it's better to walk from nearby.  more »
  • Was really surprised at how many people were there! It is worth seeing if in the area. Such a cool idea!  more »

  • Fremont Troll one of the monuments of Seattle and his Center of the universe. Status is really interesting you claimed on the status and take pictures of your self and your family it is really easy. Everything that you see in the movies video games and books here it comes from imaginary word to reality. Famous Fremont Troll always has some company and is really hard to take a picture of him standing there alone this picture was taken early in the morning. His location is right under the Aurora Avenue actually under the bridge that connects Fremont with downtown Seattle.
  • This troll is a sight to see. There's not much to it but it's actually pretty well maintained. Good backstory, almost no trash in sight. It's a great place to stop by if your on that side of town!
