Helene Spring

Helene Spring is one of Denmark's most famous springs, and legend has it that anyone whose illness has not responded successfully to other forms of treatment must come to the spring on 23 June, Sankt Hans or Midsummer's Eve. Draw the amount of water you expect to drink in the course of the night and then direct your steps towards Helene's grave; strewtched out there, drink of the mystic health-giving water, and when the morning light has finally dawned afresh, you will be cured of your ills.
