Trip Planner: USA / Washington State / Seattle / Fremont Troll
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. To visit Fremont Troll and get the most from your holiday in Seattle, create itinerary details personal to you using our Seattle road trip planning website.
Fremont Troll reviews
Troll was not hard to find, and is certainly an interesting enough sculpture and very good for a photo. Note there is a small public area to the right which has a rock turtle, worth a quick look...

I visited for the first time in February 2023. If you are a fan of the Netflix series Once Upon a Time, you may recognise this troll from a few of the episodes! My sister and I travelled by public...

Really cool art installation, not to busy and you can get some great pics if you climb up top. Bridge overhead looks cool if you turn around from looking at Troll and look down the street, local bus stops were close too.
Fun little feature to find up in Fremont! Highly recommend going there at least once. There’s even a cute little garden nearby that also has a wishing statue you can visit 😊❤️ check out the burger shop at the bottom of the bridge from the troll statue while you’re at it. Totally making this my spouse’s and mine date spot ✨ Parking tip: there’s paid parking at the bottom of the bridge, can’t quite remember the street name. You could also try street parking if you’re comfortable with parallel parking. Just be prepared to walk up those hills!
