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.

Fremont Troll Reviews
Stopped by while exploring the city. It was a cool place to see, great photo op. Wish there was a little more detail to the history of the site. If in the area I would suggest to see it. more »
We were told about this so found it on Google Maps. A bit hard to drive to but worth 5 minutes to go by. A surprising site, as you can see by the pictures on this site. Perversely enjoyable. more »
Fun local art! When our friends asked if we'd seen the troll under the bridge, I wasn't sure what to expect. This is exactly that - a troll under the bridge. He's completely delightful, and while we were there (about 10 minutes, we had to get on the road) a ton of other people came up to visit, too. Just a giant stone statue...but well worth stopping by. I have a feeling the folks in the neighborhood don't love all the extra traffic - many people walked up the hill but there were quite a few cars, too. This is just a bridge-end in a residential area, so if you can find a way to walk up, the locals would probably appreciate it. There's not really anywhere to park.
Great idea for fun under the bridge. Travelers from all around the world come and take a picture in front of this troll. It is in an Eclectic neighborhood that is easy to get to and out of. The kids will enjoy it and so will all the adults
