Hidden deep within the woods, on the outskirts of Copenhagen, Denmark, are six giants waiting to be discovered. Each of these fantastical sculptures was built by artist Thomas Dambo as a way of bringing art out of museums and into the natural world.

Today, the six giants sit waiting among the wilderness, adding adventure and magic to those willing to explore. Six large wooden giants constructed from recycled materials can be seen in the area as part of a sculpture treasure hunt route that has proven to be very popular.
Perfect for families who want to go beyond the usual touristy sights and attractions to enjoy nature, finding your way to the giants are a fun activity for older kids. Especially if you or your kids like that treasure hunt feeling.
The project was inspired by the idea of bringing art out of museums and showcasing the beautiful and often overlooked nature spots in the western part of Copenhagen, while at the same time providing an exciting experience for children, families, locals and tourists alike.
