In addition to an incredibly beautiful nature, Egholm also hides on one of the famous Thomas Dambo trolls.
Pil Tusindtunge is the name of the troll who “moved to Egholm” in the summer of 2020, where Dambo performed 10 of his famous trolls under the name “Den Store Troldefolkefest”, and if you want to find her, it is a good idea to take good hiking boots on, because Arrow hides approx. 4 km from Egholm Ferry Terminal.
The story behind Pil Tusindtunge
Pil Tusindtunge was born during "Den Store Troldefolkefest", which is the name of the project that arose due to Covid-19. Thomas Dambo should actually have built 25 trolls around the world, but due to the pandemic, Thomas flew to Denmark, where the troll folk party was created with the help of a lot of volunteer labor from locals around Denmark.
