Create an itinerary including 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.

  • This is an interesting sculpture, but worth a stop only if you're in the area in my opinion. Parking was pretty easy as well.

  • We had such a fun time visiting this sculpture under the bridge. Fun to see the crushed VW bug with added detail. The Troll Knoll walk was an added treat.

  • 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.
  • A Seattle cult art classic. It’s easy to get to, but plan on walking a bit as parking can be tight. It’s a residential area so be mindful of the neighbors as you enjoy the troll.
